An aerodynamic design method, which based on the Mean Stream Surface Method (MSSM), has been developed in designing the centrifugal compressor impeller blades. As a component of a CAD system for centrifugal compressor, it is convenient to use the presented method for generating impeller blade geometry, taking care of manufacturing as well as aerodynamic aspects.

The design procedure starts with an S2m indirect solution. Afterwards from the specified S2m surface, by the use of Taylor series expansion, the blade geometry is generated by straight-line elements to meet the requirement of manufacture. Simultaneously, the fluid dynamic quantities across the blade passage, can be determined directly. In terms of these results, the designer can revise the distribution of angular momentum along the shroud and hub, which are associated with blade loading to get satisfactory velocities along the blade surfaces in order to avoid or delay flow separation.
