	abstract = {The centrifugal impellers are used in a wide variety of turbo-machineries, ranging from low pressure fans for cooling of electric motor to high pressure ratio gas turbine compressors, from tiny cryo-cooler compressors to large industrial petrochemical compressor stations. The relative flow in centrifugal impeller is very complex due to different fluid dynamics phenomenon and their interactions. It is subjected to the complex secondary flows and significant separation of the boundary layers, which result in non-uniformity of outlet flow both in tangential direction (e.g. “jet-wake” flow) and axial direction.
