There are several ways to evaluate the codes shown as follows:

  • Demonstration Design - An ADT project manager will redesign and help optimize a single blade row using the code. Once the geometry has been generated, the results will be sent back to the customer who can evaluate the results by using CFD or experimentally. This option allows the customer to compare the results to what is currently being achieved. The design, however, can not be commercially exploited until the customer purchases an annual license.
  • Trial License - ADT will issue the code to the customer for in-house evaluation. This is for a period of either 3 months or 6 months. Or a time period can be negotiated to suit the customers need. This allows the customer to fully evaluate the code in house.
  • Trial License with Demonstration Design - This is the best way of evaluating the code. As it allows the customer to try the code in-house and at the same time it allows for close collaboration and transfer of design know-how from ADT project manager to the customers designers.
