... stage, the outer diameter was reduced by 14%. The outer radius of the smallest design was limited by the impeller exit diameter, which was kept constant, as was the axial length of the stage. The large radius baseline design has been tested on a rotating rig in a 1.5 stage setup. This setup aimed...

LES predictions suggest that the Boussinesq hypothesis does not seem to be valid, especially near the exit of the impeller where the blade unloading takes place. Reynolds stress variations show a tendency toward an “axisymmetric expansion” type of turbulence...
