Using Multiple Reference Frame Model for Turbomachinery Analysis | HiTechCFD.com

Turbomachinery is a single term given to the devices involving extracting or adding energy to the moving fluid. Its example could be a turbine using kinetic energy of the fluid to rotate the blades and convert the energy into mechanical work; or a compressor, which uses the kinetic energy of the moving blades to compress the fluid and increase its pressure. These rotating machines or turbomachinery are often being evaluated for performance using CFD techniques, as analytical solution is often difficult and time-consuming. CFD simulations can be extremely useful in predicting the performance, visualize internal flow distribution and investigating existing design.
