The Centrifugal Compressor Design Course 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 types, sizing and design
  • Splitters
  • Vaned and vaneless diffusers including wedge and low- solidity diffusers
  • Volute types, sizing and aerodynamic
  • Slip factor
  • Multi-stage compressor design considerations
  • Design of experiment applications in centrifugal compressor optimization
  • Performance and off-design compressor analysis including choke, 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. This Centrifugal Compressor Design course (Fundamentals and AxSTREAM workshop which provides in-depth hands-on experience with industry-standard tools) was developed to enable mechanical and aerospace engineers to respond to evolving industry needs and to produce high-efficiency turbomachinery.

Who should attend?

  • Engineers specializing in centrifugal compressor design and maintenance of single and multi-stage compressors for various industrial applications, turbochargers, and centrifugal blowers.
  • Engineers involved in the turbomachinery design and optimization process who are also interested in finding new, cost-effective solutions.
  • Engineering and turbomachinery scholars seeking to gain a practical understanding of the centrifugal compressor basics, compressors fluid dynamics, aerodynamics and structural analysis.
  • Mechanical and aerospace engineering professors who need valuable course and reference material to ensure comprehensive, industry-focused training for their students.

SoftInWay provides one month AxSTREAM software license for all course attendees to continue turbomachinery education after finishing of the training program.
