Abstract

The internal flows within two centrifugal blowers are examined using an inviscid formulation of the fluid equations of motion. The aim of the work was to predict the impeller unsteady stalled flow patterns whilst restricting the analysis to a single blade computational domain. Large stalled zones are predicted at flow rates corresponding to experiment. Some solver instabilities are reported for the most contorted computational meshes.
