Turbochargers are used in internal combustion engines to increase their volumetric efficiency and power. Turbochargers consist of a centrifugal compressor driven by a radial turbine. Radial turbines convert the excess kinetic energy in the exhaust gases to power. Vane less radial turbine consists of a volute and a turbine wheel. It is preferred because of its low cost, robustness and good off-design performance. In this study, a radial turbine wheel and volute are designed to meet the power and efficiency requirements. A number of trials are carried out, and the design, which gives the necessary performance and meets the customer requirements, is chosen. The design is analyzed using a validated 3D Navier-Stokes (NS) solver, viz. ANSYS-CFX software at both design and off-design conditions and turbine characteristics are generated.
