This paper from the American Helicopter Society 67th Annual Forum describes how United Technologies Research Center utilized unsteady analysis to design a high efficiency, compact centrifugal compressor for rotorcraft applications.

Based upon the CC3 centrifugal compressor design from NASA, a smaller radius version was designed with the same performance characteristics of the original machine.
