Free Webinar: Preliminary Aerodynamic Design of Centrifugal Compressors for Beginners
Join us Wednesday, March 10, 2021, at 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. (U.S. Central Time).
Host: Grant Musgrove
In this webinar, a practical approach to compressor design is provided by way of a design case. First, the conceptual sizing process based on empirical data is used to determine initial estimates of compressor size and speed. Next, a preliminary design method is shown to define the impeller inlet and exit conditions. Then, it is shown how the preliminary design can be modified during one-dimensional performance calculations and off-design can be predicted. Finally, recommendations for a detailed design process are provided.
