Development of design approaches for turbomachinery design
The research activity is aimed at the development of design methods for high performance turbomachinery. The study is focused on radial compressors or blowers. A fundamental aspect of the research is the development of parametric design tools for each turbomachinery component (impeller, diffuser and volute) and their interface with simulation platforms commercially available or developed in previous research activity by the research unit. Design optimisation or soft-computing strategies and tools could be integrated into the design suite. The turbomachinery performance at design condition and off-design are considered in order to increase the operating range or lower the noise emission.
