Application: CFD Used in Novel Compressor Design

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application A Eureka Magazine article describes the development of a new compressor design using CFD analysis by Imperial Consultants – the spin-off consulting arm of Imperial College’s mechanical engineering department.
Its basic principle is that the rotor moves round the inside of the pumping chamber in such a way that air is forced outwards towards the periphery and through valves by the space between rotor and chamber narrowing down to a pinch point. “The idea is to combine the low mechanical losses of a centrifugal compressor with the high gas compression efficiency of a reciprocating compressor” says John Hammerbeck.

Application By Kara L. Gray,
New Horizon Consulting

Sixteen milliseconds – one-fifth the speed of the blink of an eye – can mean the difference between life and death for millions of people. How can such a miniscule amount of time have such a profound effect on so many? That’s about how long it takes for one infinitesimal cancer cell to adhere to a new location within the body. In as little as a day, a new tumor is born in a phenomenon known as metastasizing.
