Abstract/Summary This report describes meshing utilities to support the mesh generation for Radial Inflow Turbines. This includes two tools: (a) parameterised mesh generator for Nozzle Guide Vanes; (b) a geometry and mesh generation tool for turbine rotors. A key feature of the turbine rotor mesh and geometry generation tool is that it allows a parametric definition of the geometry based on properties of the aerodynamic passage. For example desired flow direction and evolution of flow area. This is in contrast to alternative methods, which start by defining the physical features of the rotor (e.g. hub and shroud shape), in which case the aerodynamic passage becomes and output. In addition to providing the description of the two tools, usage instructions and examples are provided.
