Chinese International Turbomachinery Conference (CITC) is a series of conference sponsored by the Chinese Journal of Turbomachinery. The first three CITC conferences successfully provided great opportunities for researchers and engineers to exchange academic and industrial achievements in China and worldwide. Particularly, the third CITC, which took place in Chongqing, saw more than 450 participants who contributed 16 invited lectures, 14 keynote presentations and 220 technical papers organized in 14 parallel sessions. With its success, CITC has become a platform of exchanging ideas/solutions and building partnerships across the community of turbomachinery.

To be joined by the manufacturers, users, engineers, researchers and students in turbomachinery,the Fourth Chinese International Turbomachinery Conference (CITC2020) will be held in Guangzhou in April 2020. Once again, serve as a key event for presenting the latest developments and practices by academia and industry. Renowned experts will be invited to give lectures and keynote presentations. Parallel sessions will be organized to address various topics covering aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, aeroelasticity, structural design, rotordynamics and fault diagnosis, among others. Exhibitions will be provided by the organizers at the conference site.


The scope of the conference is the theory, design, numerical simulations, experimental studies, experimental methods and applications in the field of turbomachinery. A large range of machines are covered such as  compressors, blowers, fans, pumps, hydro turbines, steam and industrial gas turbines, expanders, refrigeration compressor and aero-engines. Papers are welcome relating to the following subjects:

1.  Aerodynamics / Hydrodynamics

·  Numerical methods and advanced simulations

·  Test rigs and measurements

·   Post-processing and analysis

·   Design and optimization

2.    Structures and system dynamics

·    Reliability analysis

·    Fatigue, vibration, fracture and life prediction

·    Rotordynamics

·    Bearings and seals

·    Design and optimization

3.  Aeroelasticity and aeroacoustics

4.  Heat transfer

5.  Manufacturing processes and new materials

6.  Fault diagnostics and maintenance

7.  New products and applications
