Accurate and Rapid 3D Multi-Point Optimization of Turbomachinery
Posted Monday November 23 at 5:13pm
Emission regulations such as the EU ECOdesign or US Department of Energy Pump Systems directives require pumps to be designed based on their life cycle emissions and hence require pump stages to be optimized considering multiple operating points.

In this webinar Advanced Design Technology will show how new functionality in the newly released TURBOdesign Suite 6, which allows the three dimensional inverse design code TURBOdesign 1 to operate as a module inside ANSYS workbench, can streamline the process of setting up multi-point/multi-objective optimization of various turbomachinery components.

Design Exploration & Optimization with Heat Transfer
Posted Sunday November 15 at 10:15am
CD-adapco will host Design Exploration & Optimization with Heat Transfer on December 2 in Montreal, QC, Canada

The coupling of design exploration and optimization techniques with fully-developed CFD models has long been recognized as an effective way to improve product performance while reducing development time and cost. It is often, however, a perceived increase in time and cost that prevents the adoption of these techniques in the first place.

Using CFD to Improve Valve and Pump Performance
Posted Thursday November 5 at 3:46pm
CFD ads often amaze us by showing flows over racing cars,advanced aircraft or other objects that we easily relate to. In contrast, CFD is also used to improve the performance of valves and pumps, seemingly more mundane applications.  However, valves and pumps are found in almost all fluid systems, so the additive impact of these performance improvements can be significant.
