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:
- Thermodynamic, aerodynamic basics, flow properties
- Primary axial compressor elements, stage analysis, compressor preliminary design
- Performance and off-design compressor analysis, stall and surge predictions
- Blade profile generation and 3-D shape configuration, flow in channel
- 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.
