AxSTREAM Adds Low Pressure Turbine Blade Design

News SoftInWay, Inc. a front-end digital prototyping and turbomachinery design company and developer of AxSTREAM™ - a professional tool for rapid axial turbine flow path design, has introduced a new software tool for extremely long blade design.

The design of steam turbine low pressure (LP) blades is more difficult than normal blade design due to large radial dimensions that in turn cause high centrifugal loads on the blade. AxSTREAM is able to handle such cases and successfully lays the foundation for 3D CFD analysis aimed at building an aerodynamically perfect flow path providing reliable blade operation.

An advantage of AxSTREAM's blade design is the capability to export the blade geometry to any CFD solver for high-fidelity 3D CFD analysis and to import the 3D simulation results back into AxSTREAM. This capability accelerates the data preparation procedure for 3D CFD modeling.
