In this study, a method for optimal design of impeller for centrifugal compressor under the influence of flow-induced vibration (FIV) using fluid-structure interaction (FSI) and response surface method (RSM) was studied. Numerical simulation was conducted using ANSYS with various configurations of impeller geometry. Each of the design parameters was divided into 3 levels. Total 15 design points were planned by central composite design (CCD) method, which is one of the design of experiment (DOE) techniques. Response surfaces generated based on the DOE results were used to find the optimal shape of impeller for high aerodynamic performance. The whole process of optimization was conducted using ANSYS Design Xplorer (DX). Through the optimization, structural stability and aerodynamic performance of centrifugal compressor were improved.
