AXIAL FLOW COMPRESSORS P M V Subbarao Professor Mechanical Engineering Department An Efficient Way to Ingest Life in Large amount of Fluids !!!
An Option for High Specific Speed In aero applications, the specific speed is defined as: and the flow coefficient as
Schematic representation of an axial flow compressor It is easy to design a turbine that will work…. It requires a considerable skill to design a compressor that will work…

Cycling of Kinetic Energy in Axial Flow Compressor
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) or A Constant Hub Diameter (CID),
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.
