Centrifugal compressors are used to power gas turbine engines used in jet aircraft, energy production, and other heavy industry applications. In a gas turbine, the centrifugal compressor transfers energy from impeller blades. Many factors affect compressor and turbine engine performance, including blade dynamics, fluid dynamics, and the physical properties of gas. SwRI has decades of experience helping clients in the aerospace and energy sectors to design and analyze gas turbines and centrifugal performances with expertise in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), heat transfer and CFD, fluid pipeline modeling and simulation, gas physical properties, gas turbines, materials science and structural analyses.
