TURBOdesign1 is an inviscid aero/hydrodynamic design software for turbomachinery blades based on a 3D inverse design method. The code is applicable to all types of turbomachinery such as fans, pumps, compressors, turbines and torque converters in axial, mixed-flow and centrifugal configuration.
TURBOdesign CAD is developed to considerably speed up the blade design process & integration with existing design environments. The code includes a Quasi3D module for blade loading analysis of existing designs, direct blade design capabilities and major import/export functions to/from TURBOdesign Suite.
TURBOdesign CFD is a fast and robust CFD solver developed for the application to compressible and incompressible turbomachinery flows. TURBOdesign CFD has been specifically developed in order to streamline the application of CFD in the blade design process.
TURBOdesign Optima is a fully integrated automatic optimisation platform for the design of turbomachinery blades subject to multi-point and multi-objective design objectives. The program supports Design of Experiments (DoE), Response Surface Model (RSM) and Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm (MOGA) optimization.
TURBOdesign Pre is a 1D sizing code applicable to various turbomachinery components. It uses different loss models to optimize the basic dimension of impeller, vaned and vane-less diffuser and volute given flow rate, rpm and pressure rise/head.
TURBOdesign Volute is a volute design code based on a 2D inverse design methodology which allows designers to account for circumferential variation of inlet flow angle and velocity so that off design conditions can be considered at the design stage.
TURBOdesign Shaper optimizes complex geometries with respect to given targets, such as total pressure loss and velocity uniformity. It does so by computing the sensitivities of the geometry itself versus those targets and then modifying it.
TURBOdesign 3DLab allows generating solid models of the optimised geometries created by the TURBOdesign Suite. Powered by ANSYS SpaceClaim, it enables flexible geometry manipulation and exporting the generated models to a wide array of file formats, making it compatible with the most commonly used CAD software packages.
Featuring 20 presentations from leading turbomachinery manufacturers alongside four design and optimization workshops for pumps, fans, compressors and turbines, the TURBOdesign Suite User Group Meeting is set to provide a highly technical exchange on best practices for design, analysis, automatic optimization and integration of 3D inverse design tools in industrial design workflows.
