Advanced Design Technology Ltd (ADT) and Engineous Japan Inc (EJI) plan a multi-sponsor consortium on development of methodology for multi-objective/multi-point turbomachinery aerodynamics design
ADT, a global leader in the development of advanced turbomachinery design software based on an inverse design approach, is joining forces with Engineous Japan Inc., a global leader in the development of engineering process integration, automation, and design optimization software, to establish a multi-sponsor consortium, initially open only to companies in the ASIA/Pacific region. The purpose of the consortium is to:
1. Develop a Design of Experiments (DoE) module in ADTís TURBOdesign-1 (TD1) code to allow for multi-objective/multi-point design by using Response Surface Models (RSM) and Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithms (MOGA). This module will use specific modules such as DoE, Approximations, and Optimization from EJIís iSIGHT-FD code. The module will be called the TD1-iFD module.
2. Develop a component in EJIís iSIGHT-FD code for TURBOdesign-1 that allows TURBOdesign-1 to be inserted in an iSIGHT-FD workflow by dragging and dropping a TURBOdesign-1 icon from the component tab onto the Design Gateway workflow palette. The module will be called the iFD-TD1 module.
3. Demonstrate the considerable potential of inverse design based multi-objective/multi-point design by applying the methodology to each consortium memberís specific test case.
Further information on this exciting consortium plan can be obtained at the EJI CAO Frontier Seminar in Yokohama, Japan on September 12th and 13th of 2006. A seminar outlining the detailed objectives of the consortium is planned for Thursday 14th of September at 2pm in Yokohama.
