This paper presents the impeller design system developed at Dresser-Rand using Bezier polynomials in cylindrical coordinates. A discussion of the basic techniques utilized in the code is presented as are sample graphic outputs generated to aid the user in the design process. The paper also describes some of the output options and how results may be interfaced with other analytical, drafting, and manufacturing software. Comments are included regarding the increased productivity, accuracy, and quality which resulted directly from use of this code and its support routines.
