About this Research Topic
Even though CFD has been applied in the design of fluid machinery, and substantial achievements have been made in the research aimded to increase its performance and make it a suitable tool in the actual design of turbomachinery, there are still great challenges ahead to enhance the performance and energy efficiency of fluid machinery and their auxiliary systems. At present, the system energy saving, multiphase flow mechanism, heat and mass transfer, transient- and off-design operation and flow induced vibrations are promising research areas in the scientific community around the world.
This Research Topic seeks for high-quality original research, focusing on recent advances in computational research on thermo-fluid dynamics of fluid machinery. Original research and review articles are welcome. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Control of unsteady flow in fluid machinery
- Application of new turbulence models
