An automatic software procedure, previously developed by the authors, is used for the design of a radial inflow turbine for microgasturbine applications. The procedure is formed by algorithms of different complexity levels ranging from the meanline one-dimensional design tool to the fully three-dimensional Navier-Stokes based analysis. Each code gives complementary information to the designer. The codes have been written and developed by the authors at DIMSET. The present application demonstrate the use of the above procedure and allows for a critical analysis of the tools involved.
