Technology Day CFD Turbomachinery

From wastewater pumps to francise turbines: An overview about multiple challenges in the area of turbomachinery design and simulation.

The innovative method „3D inverse Design“

Support for the development of different types of turbomachinery

New possibilities for the design of francis turbines for hydraulic power applications as well as a method for configurating wastewater pumps – i.e. centrifugal pumps able to handle fluids containing solid matter – are presented. An overview about characteristic requirements for pumps, fans and compressors is given.

Using the example of a radial fan, multi-objective optimization with the help of TURBOdesign Suite and Ansys CFD is shown. Furthermore, the simulation of transient effects, as typical for off-design operating points, for a centrifugal pump will be presented.

Ansys CFD is broadly established in industry and technics.

TURBOdesign Suite is an innovative tool based on a “3D inverse design” approach,  which derives optimal blade shapes from flow properties. The integration into Ansys workbench allows  sophisticated workflows for complex design tasks.

Who is it for?

The event addresses all engineers, developers or researchers dealing with turbomachinery design. The method is interesting for small and medium companies as well as enterprises.

What awaits you

You will get detailed insight into multiple possibilities for turbomachinery design, analysis and optimization using TURBOdesign Suite and Ansys CFD. Detailed simulation examples of Radial pumps and fans will be discussed, and new methods for Francis Turbines and wastewater pumps are demonstrated.
