This version of the first commercially available 3D inverse design software system for turbomachinery products introduces a new elliptically smoothed mesh generation routine in TURBOdesign CFD for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis as well as a new ability to predict stage performance, including volute performance, that previously was only available for pumps. Turbomachinery design engineers and manufacturers across most industries can now benefit from even greater functionality and develop products in far less time.

“The 3D inverse design method used in TURBOdesign Suite for turbomachinery design can result in significant reductions in the use of CFD computations to arrive at an optimum design and hence reduces development times,” says Professor Mehrdad Zangeneh, founder and managing director of ADT. “We are pleased to now deliver version 5.2.1 of the TURBOdesign Suite with new functionalities in TURBOdesign CFD, which has been developed to enable designers to perform accurate CFD evaluations of their designs in less time.”

Highlights of the new functionality in TURBOdesign Suite 5.2.1 include:

  • TURBOdesign CFD: Elliptically Smoothed Mesh Generation Routine - That can use different numbers of mesh sizes on the pressure and suction sides of blades coupled with elliptical smoothing to improve mesh quality near the leading and trailing edges for high stagger blades that allow users to mesh cut-off trailing edges in centrifugal pumps or compressors.
  • TURBOdesign CFD: Volute Stage Performance Prediction – Originally only available for pumps, it now includes centrifugal fans for compressible and incompressible flows. It also works on compressor designs. Stage efficiency and head-to-pressure ratios also are estimated with this new capability.
  • TURBOdesign CFD: Load Distribution Section Exporting – Has been improved to now allow users to select the number of sections when exporting load distribution of existing designs.

TURBOdesign Suite 5.2.1 in now available for download.

It runs on Windows systems. It operates on mid-range workstations with 2.4 Ghz or better processors, 2 GB RAM and 1Gb disk space.
