Abstract:

Recent developments in internal aerodynamics of centrifugal impellers and related flows are critically reviewed. The overall picture which emerges provides the reader with a state-of-the-art perspective on the subject. Gaps in understanding are identified to stimulate future research. Topics included in this review are two-dimensional subsonic and transonic inviscid flows, three-dimensional inviscid flows, the structure of turbulence in curved rotating passages and solution of viscous flow problems in impellers.
