Application: 3D Inverse Design of Centrifugal Compressor Impellers with Splitter Blades
Posted Fri June 23, 2017 @12:53PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application ADT has published a white paper on improved centrifugal compressor design through CFD analysis.

In the design of centrifugal compressor impellers with splitter blades it is quite common to use the same blade shapes on the full and splitter blades with the splitters placed at the mid-pitch location. However, recent results using conventional design methodology have indicated that by moving the pitch wise location of the leading edge of the splitter it is possible to improve splitter performance.
