Abstract: The need to be more and more competitive is pushing the complexity of aerodynamic and mechanical design of rotating machines at very high levels. New concepts are required to improve the current machine performances from many points of view: aerodynamics, mechanics, rotordynamics, and manufacturing. Topology optimization is one of the most promising new approaches in the turbomachinery field for mechanical optimization of rotoric and statoric components. It can be a very effective enabler to individuate new pa…
