Abstract:

The radial inflow turbine is a primary component used both in small gas turbines and turbochargers. Better understanding of the flow processes occurring within the small passages of the machine could well result in the improved design of units. As most of the detailed aerodynamics is still ill- defined, a joint research project with the objective of improving our understanding has been instigated by Cranfield, the US Army and Turbomach San Diego. This document gives the seventh report on the project and describes progress and measurements taken.
