Special topic:

Thermofluidic and Aerodynamic Optimizations for Turbomachinery


Topic summary:

Turbomachines are essential energy conversion elements widely adopted in industrial applications, such as land-based power generation and aircraft propulsion. A large number of investigations have been carried out to design turbomachines with higher thermal and aerodynamic performance. However, the raditional way of proceeding involves numerous simulations, error experiments, and separate trials. Optimization techniques can provide a powerful path to the most suitable design whilst considering multiple objectives, disciplines, or subsystems. Hence, multi-objective and multi-disciplinary optimization methodologies have attracted lots of attention and have progressed enormously in recent years. More detailed, multi-disciplinary design optimization has become essential for solving complex engineering design problems by decomposing a problem into several sub-problems and collecting the local solutions to give a new design point for the original question.


However, some challenges are still encountered when applying optimization methodologies to design complex features, which can include complicated coupling effects and various uncertainties. Investigations on advanced optimization methods for thermofluidic, aerodynamic, aero-thermal, and aero-thermodynamic optimization problems need to be further carried out. The special issue of the CJA will bring leading researchers and engineers from both industry and academia together to present their latest research and original articles on recent advances in the field of thermofluidic and aerodynamic optimizations for turbomachinery.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Thermofludic or aerodynamic optimizations on turbomachinery by Design of Experiment (DOE) methods, Taguchi Methods, Surrogate models, Response Surface Methods (RSM), Kriging metamodels (KRG), Radial Basis Functions (RBF), Genetic Algorithms (GA), Annealing algorithms, Adjoint methods, Gradient-based Optimization method, etc.Other multi-disciplinary optimization methods for turbomachinery, such as Aero-thermal optimization, Aero-thermal-structural optimization, Aero-acoustic optimization, Aero-elastic optimization, Aero-thermo-elastic optimization, etc.


Applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to the above-entioned optimization problems in turbomachinery.
