Objectives
applications. UICP 6.0 B. To define sets of algorithms for the design of machine impellers and volutes for specific operations requiring high head and large flow. C. To design the aero-mechanical structure of the machines, including the geometrical shape of the impellers and volutes. D. To design and manufacture prototypes to validate the machine performance, characteristics and efficiency. E. To measure the machine output performance and efficiency, and suggest improvement strategies. F. To develop a turn-key software program for potential users to support their use of the developed algorithms for specific airflow system design.
