Paper Abstract

Turbomachinery such as fans, compressors and turbines are usually designed and optimized for one operating point. The efficiency of such a machine significantly decreases if it operates at off-design conditions. Therefore the efficiency could be increased if the flow channel geometry can be adapted to the varying flow conditions such as flow sped and mass flow.
