Turbostream papers at Turbo Expo 2013

Turbostream calculations featured in several papers at the 2013 ASME Turbomachinery conference.

Inverse Design of 3D Multi-Stage Transonic Fans at Dual Operating Points
Page, J. H. and Tucker, P. G. (Whittle Laboratory)
Hield, P. (Rolls-Royce)

A semi-inverse design algorithm was developed for designing simultaneously for specified performance at full speed and peak efficiency at part speed.  This was wrapped around the Turbostream solver and a test case demonstrated.

The Effect of Inlet Guide Vanes on Inlet Flow Distortion Transfer and Transonic Fan Stability
Shaw, M. H. and Tucker, P. G. (Whittle Laboratory)
Hield, P. (Rolls-Royce)

Turbostream was used to investigate the effects of variable inlet guide vanes on the performance and stability margin of a transonic fan in the presence of inlet flow distortion and compared with experimental data.
