CD-adapco The CD adapco Group claims to have solved the problem of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) mesh generation for gas turbine design with a new software tool, es-turbo. The 'es' prefix denotes the Expert System nature of the software that enables it to be 'taught' to apply the optimum methodology to solve application-specific problems, in this case mesh generation and pre-/post-postprocessing for CFD. The CD adapco Group were empowered to develop this highly effective tool through their engineering services / consultancy work for major clients such as Dresser-Rand and General Electric.

With es-turbo, the simulation of complex geometries in gas turbines including stationary and rotating blade rows is made simpler by its ability to automatically create high quality computational meshes. Users of CFD codes, including the CD adapco Group's own code, STAR-CD, can be freed from time-consuming mesh generation, allowing them to focus on the real engineering challenges of optimizing the performance and efficiency of land-based gas turbines.
