Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary design of a three stage fan for a twin-spool low bypass ratio turbofan aeroengine. Design produre has been initialized with the specification of technical requirements obtained from the parametric cycle analysis. With this information, a suitable baseline engine is selected that has the closest technical specifications. The design process continues with the determination of the number of fan stages and other stage parameters. The next step is the designation of the blade airfoil profiles such that they have adequate stall margin in subsonic conditions. Airfoils are designed to avoid both positive and negative stall situations. Hub profiles have noticeably larger cambers due to lower linear speeds in comparison to tip profiles. By stacking up airfoil profiles in the radial direction form hub to tip a quasi three dimensional design is reached. Finally, solid models of the rotor and the stator parts were produced.
