Abstract : This user's manual describes the vane and bleed optimization computer program (Customer Computer Deck CCD 1182). The program includes the capacity of handling four variable vanes and one bleed. The basic goal-seeking algorithm is the COPES/CONMIN approximate optimization method. The program includes a stage-by-stage compressor model that simulates an eleven stage, four variable vane compressor to demonstrate program capabilities. This document presents sample problems using the compressor simulation to help the user become familiar with the program deck. (Author)
