FLOW: Can you describe the project that you used ADS Release 6.0 on?
FRED: Recently, I was involved in the aerodynamic design of a multi-stage low-pressure turbine for an aero engine. Our company is a small one, and we needed computer codes that could handle the aggressive design requirements.

FLOW: What kind of design requirements did you have?
FRED: Well we needed to be able to design and analyze high performance airfoil sections, stack them to create 3D airfoils, perform 3D viscous analysis of each row and then optimize the entire multi-stage turbine. This needed to be done within a short design cycle. Iíve worked for large OEMs in the past and we needed that kind of horsepower but at a price that was affordable.
