A three-dimensional mathematical model has been developed to simulate the flow condition in a scroll. Coordinate transformations are used as an effective tool to make the model universal, and the final governing equations are solved by the finite difference method. Three cases of scroll geometry have been investigated and the results are compared with one another to show the effects of scroll geometry on the flow condition at the outlet of the scroll.
