Just in time for the Winter/Spring semester, universities can take advantage of the special promotion price with a 33% discount until January 15, 2008.
The educational version of AxSTREAM provides students and faculty access to leading edge axial and radial turbomachinery design and
multidisciplinary optimization software at minimum expense.
The program constitutes a “learn as you go” course that aids students in understanding the overall design and performance principles of axial and radial turbines and compressors through the same fully interactive AxSTREAM™ design programs used by engineering professionals throughout the world.
The educational version is configured to be easily integrated into the teaching process and course curricula.
“AxSTREAM is a highly efficient and integrated turbomachinery design system that includes many years of valuable design expertise,” states Dr. Cengiz Camci, Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Penn State University. “The software is highly integrated with many well known design methods, loss correlations and efficiency definition systems. Industrial design exercises can be effectively completed in short amounts of time.
A complex multi-stage design can be quickly analyzed for stress concentrations and flow field anomalies using built-in solvers. The use of this design suite in turbomachinery education both at undergraduate and graduate levels should enhance the quality
of engineering education in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering programs. The student's time consumption from concept to multi-stage turbomachinery design is shortened immensely.”
Gaining marketable skills in turbomachinery design and multidisciplinary optimization, the student (individually or in study teams) will be able to:
- Design a flow path based on given overall application requirements;
- Appreciate the interactions between aerodynamic performance and mechanical integrity;
- Perform design optimization encompassing 1D and 2D direct problem computation;
- Generate cascade profiles that easily relate to aerodynamic theory;
- Create full 3 dimensional blade/vane designs;
