Application: CFD Aids Design of High Performance Turbocharger Compressors
Posted Wed February 16, 2011 @09:23AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Cummins Turbo Technologies, a leading designer and manufacturer of turbochargers for diesel and gas-derivative engines above 2.3 litres, recently applied TURBOdesign1 - 3D inverse design code - for the development of the next-generation of high performance centrifugal compressors for turbocharger applications.

A turbocharged diesel engine’s fuel consumption is directly influenced by the turbocharger efficiency through the engine’s pumping cycle work. The more efficient the turbomachinery, the lower the work done by the engine during the pumping cycle, resulting in better engine Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC).

Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Today's low-cost computational resources have fundamentally changed the way we approach modern technical challenges. In the world of CFD, one of the most dramatic changes has been the increasing use of unsteady (transient) simulations, which allows engineers and scientists to study moving machinery and turbulence flows more effectively.

Join Tecplot on Tuesday, February 15, at 10 am (PST) for an informative webinar that will discuss how the requirements for quantitative and qualitative post-processing diverge from the tried and true methods for steady state simulations.
