Investigation of an Inversely Designed Centrifugal Compressor Stage
This two-part paper describes the application and numerical and experimental validation of the 3D Inverse Design method to the design of a centrifugal compressor impeller with splitter blades.
Part I describes the input specification for the impeller and how its performance compares with the conventional design
Part II looks at a detailed experimental comparison of the ﬂow ﬁeld at the exit of the two impellers
Understand how an inverse method can be used to create higher performing compressor stage designs
