This lesson covers the design and characteristics of radial flow turbines. It delves into the issues related to the overall characteristics of radial flow turbines and the process of designing them. The lesson explains that radial flow turbines are robust machines with a few limitations. It discusses the difference between radial flow turbines and axial flow turbines, and the reasons why radial flow turbines are often preferred. The lesson also covers the characteristic features of radial inflow turbines and the primary design considerations. It further explains the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for fine-tuning the design of these turbines. For instance, the lesson uses the example of a micro gas turbine to illustrate the application of radial flow turbines in real-world scenarios.
