Commercial Release Of TURBOdesign-2 Announced

12 February 2005

TURBOdesign-2 is an Aerodynamic design code for application to turbomachinery blades; the software is based on a 3D viscous transonic inverse design method. TURBOdesign-2 has been developed mainly for the design of turbomachinery components such as transonic fans where shock and boundary layer interaction effects are significant.

10 January 2005

TURBOdesign-2 is a 3D viscous transonic inverse design code which was developed as part of a consortium sponsored by Rolls Royce, Fiat Avio, Kawasaki Heavy Industry, Toshiba, Toyota and Ebara Corporation. The code accounts for viscous effects and can capture shock waves. The code was developed in particular for applications such as transonic fans in which most of the pressure rise (at least near the tip) comes from the shockwave and shock capturing is essential.

Issue of Version 2.2 of TURBOdesign-1

30 September 2004

Advanced Design Technology, the global leader in turbomachinery blade design methodology based on inverse design approach, has released version 2.2 of its TURBOdesign-1 Turbomachinery blade design software. The latest release of TURBOdesign1 includes a a script version which can be coupled with any in-house or commercial automatic optimization codes. Coupling TURBOdesign-1, which is based on a 3D inverse design approach, with automatic optimizers can help to speed up the convergence of 3D turbomachinery aerodynamic optimization because;
