    Abstract

    In the present study, a numerical optimisation of guide vanes in an annular diffuser, is performed. The optimisation is preformed for the purpose of improving the following two parameters simultaneously; the first parameter is the uniformity perpen-dicular to the flow direction, a 1/3 diameter downstream of the expansion. The second parameter is the pressure loss introduced by these guide vanes. The optimisation yields an improvement of the uniformity of 1.5% and a 28% reduction in the over all pressure loss.
