Turbocharger

Our turbocharger design online training will go over the theoretical knowledge required to design, analyze and optimize axial turbines and/or radial turbines and centrifugal compressors as well as how to match them together. The scope covered both in the fundamentals and the AxSTREAM® platform, hands-on parts will range from conceptual design to analysis of a machine for design and off-design conditions, blade profiling and 3D analyses (FEA & CFD).

The course scope includes:

  • Fluid dynamics basics
  • Working fluid properties
  • Flow in channels
  • Centrifugal compressor, axial turbine and/or radial turbine elements
  • Centrifugal compressor, axial turbine and/or radial turbine design parameters
  • Blade/impeller types, designs and loading
  • Slip factor
  • Splitters
  • Vaned, vaneless diffusers including wedge and low-solidity diffusers
  • Volute types, shapes, sizing and aerodynamic design
  • Losses in single-stage and multi-stage centrifugal compressors, axial turbines and/or radial turbines
  • Multistage centrifugal compressors design including return channels, deswirlers, etc.
  • AxSTREAM® preliminary design of axial and/or radial turbines and centrifugal compressors
  • AxSTREAM® streamline solver for axial and/or radial turbines and centrifugal compressors
  • Off-design performance predictions including stall, choke and surge
  • Axial and/or radial blade profiling and 3D FEA structural and vibration analysis
  • Turbine and compressor matching

Who should attend:

  • Engineers in the automotive/marine, propulsion and power generation industry to gain an extensive understanding of turbocharger design, performance and matching of engine and turbochargers
  • Engineers who are interested in getting a detailed overview on design of turbocharger compressors and turbines
  • Academicians and students looking for comprehensive theory-rich and hands-on course on turbocharger design
