Our turbocharger design training will go over the theoretical knowledge required to design, analyze and optimize 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 and radial turbine elements
  • Centrifugal compressor and radial turbine design parameters
  • 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 and radial turbines
  • Multistage centrifugal compressors design including return channels, deswirlers, etc.
  • AxSTREAM® preliminary design of radial turbines and centrifugal compressors
  • AxSTREAM® streamline solver for radial turbines and centrifugal compressors
  • Off-design performance predictions including stall, choke and surge
  • 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 turbochargers
