The CFD Analysis of Internal Flow Field in Turbocharger Compressor
In this paper, the 3D flow analysis model of gasoline engine turbocharger compressor was built by using the software NUMECA. The flow fields of the vaneless diffuser and volute, such as airflow velocity field, temperature field, pressure field and the entropy field were simulated. The internal flow performance of the vaneless diffuser and volute were analyzed. The simulation results show that the field changes accord with the compressor characteristics, thus the vaneless diffuser and volute of the compressor design is reasonable. The approach of numerical simulation and flow field analysis by using CFD method can accurately predict the compressor performance. The research methods and conclusions provide theoretical and practical reference for the optimization design of the compressor.
