Abstract

Splitter vanes are additional, smaller airfoils that are placed circumferentially between the main blades of a compressor rotor. They have been used for decades in centrifugal rotors, and have been shown to improve overall performance in terms of pressure ratio and efficiency. Wennerstrom (circa 1974) was the first to use the splitter concept in an axial… (More)
