CHICAGO, IL: Advanced Design Technology (ADT) revises its 3D inverse design technology software - TURBOdesign Suite to v6.0. The technology benefits the turbomachinery design engineers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to the maximum and is now ready for download. It operates on a processor with a minimum 2.4GHz speed, 2GB RAM and 1Gb disk space in Windows environment.

The suite allows users to design, analyze and optimize all types of turbomachinery like axial, mixed-flow or centrifugal pumps, compressors, fans, turbines and torque converters. In addition to the automatic optimization capabilities, designers can evaluate the package size and performance, create a detailed 3D blade design, analyze flow information per component and automate the design space exploration.

Latest version comprises of highlights such as:

TURBOdesign Pre: Centrifugal compressors have now been made capable of estimating compressor map at pre-defined speeds. It assists designers in making quick decisions on specified part of compressor design to attain specific choke and stall requirements. This feature proves useful when it comes to turbochargers, chillers as well as other industrial applications. Also, the meanline design – a prime aspect that is computed based on the miniature dimensions, such as tip diameter and exit width is included as part of this release.

TURBOdesign 1: It is a user interface taking on a new form with the inclusion of a deck of new features, enriching user experience and browsing capabilities. ‘ADT User Defined Performance Parameters Library’ – a Python class with methods, leads the way-in to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) data.

TURBOdesign Optima: The primary features of this module include the built-in ‘Design of Experiment Method’ for creating surrogate models, easy integration with TURBOdesign1 and other FEA and CFD codes and more.

TURBOdesign WB: It makes blending of TURBOdesign1 with ANSYS Workbench effortless, by automatically generating Workbench scripts to set up project outlines.

TURBOdesign 3DLab: Powered by ANSYS Spaceclaim, this module speeds up the creation of solid models related to blade rows. Users can add fillets and combine solids; geometry created can be exported to various file formats to make it compatible with the widely used CAD packages.
