With the increasing popularity of turbocharging technology in the automotive industry, and people's increasing awareness of environmental protection, engineers are paying more attention to the technical development of turbochargers, while more advanced tools and methods are being used in the actual turbocharged design process to improve the accuracy and efficiency of research and design. Traditional turbocharger design methods are often based on experimental data and empirical models, and long development cycles conflict with market demand, and high performance conflict with high reliability. In this paper, in order to resolve this significant contradiction, a design process based on a variety of CAE methods and tools is proposed for the design of turbines, which are key components of turbochargers. This process was early applied to the design of turbocharger compressor, and then under the original boundary conditions, considering the challenges of high temperature and high engine demand, it has been improved and applied to the design of a 9L off-road country Tier-IV engine turbine in the Chinese market. The analysis shows that the turbine has good aerodynamic performance and structural reliability. The turbine performance was tested in gas stand the also verified on the engine test. This study demonstrated that the design was successful and future new turbine design can use similar procedure.
