Recommended for all engineers!! Recent mechanical and aero engineer graduates with a very strong background in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, boundary layer theory, and turbomachinery courses may not need this intensive review. We recommend all engineers to use this intensive 'boot camp' review to revitalize their foundation of basics prior to taking an advanced course for compressors, especially those taught by Concepts NREC staff.


Topics include the Essentials of Turbomachinery Design, Dimensional Analysis, Scaling, and Similitude; Principles of Structural Analysis; Boundary Layer Growth, Stability, and Range for compressors.


Flexible online delivery with live instructor lectures. Take this course and receive 15% discount when combined with registration for our advanced compressor course: Centrifugal Compressors: Improving Design for Better Performance (May 2022).



This course will be taught using the Introduction to Turbomachinery textbook by David Japikse and Nicholas C Baines. Students will also receive downloadable pdf course materials. 


Lead Instructor

Dr. David JapikseDave Japikse
Dr. Japikse is the CEO and Founder of Concepts NREC, the world’s leading full-service turbomachinery design and development organization. Dr. Japikse received his B.S. in Engineering from Case Institute of Technology, his M.Sc. and Ph.D. Degrees in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University and conducted post-doctoral research as a Fulbright Scholar/NSF Fellow at the Technische Hochschule in Aachen, Germany. He has received extensive recognition for his work in the design of pumps, compressors, and turbines, as well as the development of design tools.


A recipient of the 2010 Henry R. Worthington Medal for eminent achievement in pumping machinery, as well as other prestigious awards, he is also an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering and the Vermont Academy of Science and Engineering. Dr. Japikse has also authored/edited ten books and written/presented 300+ reports on turbomachinery design and development.


Other guest lecturers will also present on specific topics throughout the week.
