Abstract : The primary focus of this paper is to illustrate the application of three-dimensional viscous procedures for optimizing the turbomachinery component geometry. Specific cases presented in the paper include the application of three-dimensional viscous analyses to a transonic axial compressor rotor, a splittered axial compressor rotor, a turbine rotor, and an exhaust mixer-nozzle. Application of an axisymmetric Navier Stokes solver to the inlet particle separator, and a two-dimensional inverse design procedures for customizing compressor airfoil geometry are also briefly included.
