Fluid Mechanics of Turbomachines

Fluid Mechanics of Turbomachines


Within this research theme, flow phenomena in turbomachines are investigated. An improved, qualitative and quantitative, understanding of these phenomena is essential for further improving the performance of turbomachines. Such improvements, particularly in efficiency, are stimulated by EU-regulations and market demands.

Different types of turbomachine are considered, mainly:
