Application by Dr. Peter S. Weitzman
Concepts NREC

Automated optimization in the turbomachinery design process has long been an objective of many designers and a topic of study by several companies. Concepts NREC first responded to the need for such a practical system in 1997 when the company received funding from NASA to integrate iSIGHT software from Engineous Software into it's own Agile Engineering Design System®.

This early work focused on using optimization algorithms to manipulate the geometries of centrifugal pumps, fans, and compressors, with the analysis of each candidate design being conducted using a rapid streamline curvature (SLC) solver. [1]

News ALGOR, Inc., a leading provider of design, analysis and simulation software, announced the immediate availability of FEMPRO, which has been designed to compete with Femap in the arena of pre- and post-processing for NASTRAN-compatible and other finite element analysis (FEA) software.

"FEMPRO is a modern, easy-to-use and complete system with full finite element modeling, results evaluation and presentation capabilities. Using FEMPRO, users build FEA models which can be processed by a variety of solvers for the purpose of performing mechanical simulation, which is often called virtual prototyping," said Bob Williams, ALGOR Product Manager.

CD-adapco An es-ice training course will be held at our Plymouth Office from January 23-27, 2006 for new users. If you are a new user of es-ice or a past user requiring a refresher course to improve your experience, then this course will be the correct level for you. The only prerequisite is that you should have a good working knowledge of pro-STAR and STAR-CD V3.2X, including transient simulations.

es-ice (Expert System Internal Combustion Engines) is a meshing and analysis tool developed and used by CD-adapco to simplify the meshing and analysis setup for transient in-cylinder flow and combustion calculations for reciprocating engines.

Announcements Advanced Design Technology (ADT), the global leader in advanced turbomachinery design codes are pleased to announce a two day aero/hydro-dynamic design training workshop for incompressible flow turbomachinery applications, such as Pumps and Fans. The workshop will be held in London on 3-4 April 2006.

ADT will introduce the inverse design process and compare the benefits over conventional design methods. The workshop will enable the participants to apply the unique features of TURBOdesign-1 3D inverse design code, coupled with TURBOcfd in the Aerodynamic and Hydrodynamic design of their own specific blade row under the supervision of ADT’s experienced design staff.
