News SoftInWay, Inc., the developer of AxSTREAM™ - a powerful software suite that encompasses the complete engineering process of axial turbomachinery flow path conceptual design and optimization, continues its education line in the way of inclusion of this flagship product in various education courses.

'We have developed educational programs for all who want to learn, improve or expand their knowledge in turbomachinery design. Our programs benefit undergraduates, graduates, teachers, professional designers and retrofitters, all of who, using our rapid and reliable design tools' - says Leonid Moroz, President and CEO of SoftInWay. -'Recently, the Mechanical Engineering Department of Louisiana State University (LSU) has chosen to include AxSTREAM in their Turbomachinery Program. We are pleased with their decision to incorporate our software into their curriculum because LSU places high emphasis on turbomachinery academic, research and educational activities, making a real contribution to the industry science and practice.'

Dr. Shengmin Guo, LSU Mechanical Engineering Faculty Assistant Professor and instructor of the ME 4853 course Turbomachinery, said: "The educational version of AxSTREAM offered to us by SoftInWay covers all basic lines in turbine design and optimization. We were able to effortlessly integrate the AxSTREAM tool into the learning process as an efficiency assistant for students.' Dr. Guo also added: 'I am very pleased to report that most of students learned to use AxSTREAM, which helped enhance the theoretical matters encompassed by the course. Naturally, it took them some time to figure out how to set the important performance parameters and how to evaluate the effect of varying those parameters on the overall performance of the turbine. AxSTREAM enabled the students to examine the relationships between path parameters and blade shapes, making it a very useful supporting educational tool. Spanning the concepts-to-details process of axial turbine design and retrofitting, the tool enriched the students with application-oriented guidelines for new and existing turbine flow path designs along with real design techniques for the entire flow path and its optimization. In some of my students' opinion, this software has been one of the best they have worked with in their Mechanical Engineering curriculum.'

Being a company deeply committed to future engineers' solid knowledge of turbomachinery design, SoftInWay offers AxSTREAM for use in the turbomachinery courses of educational entities worldwide.
