Fluid mechanics, acoustics, and design of turbomachinery, part 2A conference was conducted to investigate various parameters involved in the design of turbomachinery. The acoustic properties of compressor rotors at subsonic speeds are described to show the sources of sound in fluid flows and sound radiation from the rotors. The design criteria for turbomachinery are examined to show impeller design methods, transonic compressor technology, and blade selection for an axial flow compressor. Specific applications of turbomachinery used as pumps for aerospace applications and turbomachinery for marine propulsion are described.
