Fluid Machinery Design Principles - a.y. 2016/2017

SSD: ING-IND/08

CFU: 9

Period (Year/Semester): II/II

Languade: Italian

Required/expected prior knowledge: Nothing

Lecturers: Manna Marcello 

Course objectives:
The course provides basic knowledge of the aero-thermal design principles of fluid machinery. Technical aspects concerning guidelines to establish the most relevant geometrical features of conventional fluid machinery are dealt with a fluid dynamic approach.

Tables of contents: 
Fundamentals of aero-thermal design; sizing and assembling principles.
Radial and axial flow compressors. Radial and axial flow pumps.
Reciprocating and rotary pumps and compressors.
Radial and axial flow turbines.
Labs:
Machinery sizing through Cordier charts.
Aero-thermal design of axial fan, multi-stage axial flow compressor, centrifugal compressor, single stage positive displacement compressor, centrifugal pump, radial flow gas turbine and horizontal axis wind turbine.

Education method: 
Theory and practice; design exercise through team work.
