Quantifying manufacturing uncertainties for micro compressors

The aim of the project is to analyze the impact of geometric deviations on part performance using adequate performance modeling tools and statistical methods. A one-dimensional (1D) performance analysis tool and 3D CFD simulations are used analyze the impeller manufacturing tolerances.
