NUMECA Releases FINE/Design3D

News Numeca has released FINE/Design3D, a software tool for the design and optimization of innovative, efficient 3D blade shapes. Multi-parameter user-defined objective functions are used to define design performance targets while meeting geometrical and mechanical constraints.

FINE/Design3D includes Autoblade and Design3D.

Autoblade is a versatile parametric blade modeler for accurate representation of all types of turbomachinery blades and channels. Geometry definition is generic (Pressure/Suction side or Camberline/Thickness) and highly flexible (independent control of the tangential and meridional lean and sweep, multiple choices for the 3D blade stacking, multiple splitters, rounded or cut-off leading and trailing edges with tailored shapes…).

Design3D is a powerful and integrated optimisation process for turbomachinery applications. Through a comprehensive interface, customised to the turbomachinery design industry, an optimisation loop is performed that includes:

  • A self-learning database that stores the parameters of the optimisation runs;
  • An optimization step with gradient, simulated annealing and genetic algorithm methods.

Optimisation targets can be linked to local and global features of the flow field, while geometrical constraints can limit the solution domain.
