General information - Compressor

The compressor test case is very similar to the turbine case. The computational geometry of radial compressor is extracted from the turbocharger:

turbocharger z 1
turbocharger y 1
turbocharger z 1 1

Figure: Original turbocharger geometry, radial compressor part depicted in green.

The input for this methodology is consisting of surface geometry in (.STL) file format13.1. Original files can be found in directory tutorials/meshFactory/STL. STL model can be viewed in paraview, opening following files:


  • c-housing.stl
  • c-wheel_mucked.stl
  • c-back.stl
  • shaft.stl
