The Large Power-Output Radial Inflow Turbine
The performance of advanced radial inflow (RIF) turbines is reviewed and new results of stress and blade vibration analysis are presented. Due to the development of modern manufacturing techniques, large radial inflow turbines are a competitive reality for large power-output cryogenic turboexpanders, hot gas power recovery expanders and industrial gas turbines.
