Thermomechanical characteristics of the gas flow at the turbocharger compressor outlet largely determine the quality of the intake process in piston engines with boost. The article presents the results of an experimental study of gas-dynamics and heat transfer of gas flows after compression in a turbocharger centrifugal compressor. A brief description of the experimental setup, the configuration of pipes under investigation, the measuring system and the experimental features are given. The studies were carried out on a free compressor, i.e. without considering the piston part. Different conditions in the compressor outlet channel were created by installing special nozzles with different hydraulic resistances. It has been established that the local heat transfer increases from 23 to 46 % with an increase in the turbocharger rotor speed, depending on the outlet channel configuration. It should be noted that an increase in rotor speed is also accompanied by an increase in air flow through the channel. The increase in flow rate was from 10 to 42 %.
