19 Cycling of Kinetic Energy in Axial Flow Compressor
20 Macro Geometric Specification of An Axial Compressor The geometry of a compressor can be categorised into 3 main designs types,A Constant Outer Diameter (COD),A Constant Mean Diameter (CMD) orA Constant Hub Diameter (CID),
21 Specifications of An Axial Compressor There are several different parameters that can specify a particular compressor.The first set of input parameters are based on the running conditions for the machine.These involve mass flow, pressure ratio , rotational speed and the number of stages.Stage degree of reaction : For controlling the distribution of the load between the rotor and the stator.If this is not of importance, the outlet flow angle for the each stage must be set instead.
