Through-flow modeling of turbomachinery flows is the principle tool for inverse design, off-design analysis and post-processing of test data, due to its capability to simulate the principal aspects of turbomachinery flows, swirling flow with rotors and stators, in the axisymmetric meridian plane with minimum two orders of magnitude smaller computational time compared to three-dimensional analysis methods. Turbomachine energy equation and empirical models for incidence, deviation, pressure loss and blockage are used to define source terms for an axisymmetric compressible flow solution. Even though the subject has been studied in numerous aspects for compressors and turbines, open literature on fully coupled fan and splitter design of turbofan engines is still limited. The present study addresses this void by developing a new split-flow method for inverse streamline curvature flow solution methodology in the course of this thesis. Hybridized empirical models that are compiled from the literature are implemented as a baseline to be calibrated. The method is validated both experimentally and numerically on a total of six different test cases within a three-step validation strategy. Firstly, split-flow solutions of the developed method for three representative duct geometries, but without a turbomachinery, are validated. Secondly, two different single-stream transonic fans, NASA 2-stage fan and a custom-designed fan stage are used to experimentally and numerically validate the empirical models, respectively. Thirdly, experimental data of GE-NASA by-pass fan is used to validate the complete models. It is shown that the accuracy of solutions in the tested cases are within less than 1.6% in pressure ratio, 2.3% in efficiency, 8% in velocity and 1.8 degree in flow angle. With this accuracy level, the proposed method is shown to be valid and can be implemented into existing compressor streamline curvature methodologies with minimal numerical effort.
