Abstract: The applicant has been involved with the design, research, and development of large turbochargers and associated products since joining D. Napier and Son Ltd. in 1966. The techniques used to design these types of products have developed, and the applicant has made contributions in a range of disciplines including structural analYSiS, thermodynamics, aerodynamics, rotordynamics, and hydrodynamics. During the period 1966 to 1982 the applicant contributed to the Company's range of products in many of the above mentioned disciplines. From 1982 until leaving the Company in 1989 the applicant was mainly responsible for the mechanical design of the products. The period 1989 to 1994 has been spent in the Engineering Design Institute, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Loughborough University of Technology. During this latter period the applicant has been able to make a significant contribution to a wide group of companies, and has been involved with projects concerning large turbochargers and centrifugal compressors. The 15 publications during the period 1984-1994 submitted by the applicant reflect this close involvement in large turbochargers and other associated products.
