Radial turbine design and analysis
 
Hi dear cfd online community. I m senior student in mechanical engineering and my final project is about designing of a turbocharger turbine. My instructor wants me to design a turbine impeller that can produce 200kw power and the pressure at outlet will be 1 atm. I used VISTA RTD tool to obtain designated blade geometry and meshed it with turbogrid. Now I m trying to simulate flow with fluent to see if the impeller works or not. But my fluent knowledge is very limited and couldnt find much source to guide me about boundary conditions and solution setups. My solutions dont converge or results dont make sense. If anyone helps me with this project I will really appreciate. Please feel free to ask me further contact info. Thanks for reading this.

You should try going through the tutorials first. Some of them cover turbomachineries. There is a lot to learn from them.
