This comprehensive course includes multiple topics, starting with the basics of fluid dynamics and ending with a detailed overview of multistage centrifugal compressor design. To provide students with a better understanding of the materials covered, the course features numerous real-life examples and exercises.
The scope includes:
  • Thermodynamic, aerodynamic basics, flow properties
  • Primary centrifugal compressor elements, stage analysis, compressor preliminary design
  • Impeller, splitter, diffuser and volute 3D design exploration
  • Multistage compressor design considerations
  • Design of experiment applications in centrifugal compressor optimization
  • Performance and off-design compressor analysis, stall and surge predictions
  • Blade profile generation and 3-D shape configuration, flow in channel
  • Centrifugal compressor retrofitting
The ever-expanding demand for minimizing energy consumption is setting the stage for more eco-friendly engineering solutions. The Centrifugal Compressor Design course (Fundamentals and AxSTREAM workshop) was developed to enable mechanical and aerospace engineers to respond to evolving industry needs and to produce high-efficiency turbomachinery.
SoftInWay provides one month AxSTREAMTM software license for all course attendees to continue turbomachinery education after finishing of the training program.
