Axial Compressor Fundamentals: 2-Day Training Course


This course covers a broad range of topics from general compressor layouts to a detailed approach to flow paths aerodynamic design. The extensive theoretical section is supported by multiple examples and exercises which bring a practical understanding of the topics being explored.

The scope includes:

  1. Thermodynamic, aerodynamic basics, flow properties
  2. Primary axial compressor elements, stage analysis, compressor preliminary design
  3. Performance and off-design compressor analysis, stall and surge predictions
  4. Blade profile generation and 3-D shape configuration, flow in channel
  5. Compressor stage design, modern machine designs

The goal of this course is to enrich the engineering backgrounds of attendees by providing a comprehensive set of information on axial compressor design and operation.

Today’s awareness of minimizing energy consumption (coupled with the growing demand for environmentally-friendly technologies) emphasizes the need for implementation of new, cost-effective engineering solutions. The Axial Compressor Fundamentals course is designed to help mechanical and aerospace engineers keep up-to-date with an ever-developing industry and to continually increase the efficiency of turbomachinery. This course helps industry engineers to meet the evolving needs of their customers.
