In many instances, the design of new turbofan engine is an iterative process of optimizing engine cycle parameters (i.e. thermodynamics) and executing  preliminary design geometry of engine components (i.e. aero design, constrained with structural, manufacturing, fitting in engine layout, size, weight  & other requirements) for the best performing  realizable  solution.  Consideration of the preliminary design of the engine in the totality of these requirements seems to be an interesting topic to address.

 

 Coupling cycle calculations with detailed preliminary design of turbomachinery components for getting optimized turbofan engine is the topic of this article. Detailed preliminary design means generating geometry and getting flow data and performance for each component of the multistage geometry of the engine, sufficient in the scope to move design process to 2D and 3D considerations.

Super Critical Carbon Dioxide Turbomachinery Design

Why supercritical CO2?

 

Super critical carbon dioxide (sCO2) is one of the hottest topics in the turbomachinery world right now.  From my own experience, I remember when the subject occupied a few sleepy sessions at the ASME Turbo Expo several years back.  Today, its possible to spend the entire week at the conference and never leave a well-attended session dedicated specifically to sCO2
