A Direct Design module
Some manufacturing constraints may impose small modifications to the blades designed with TURBOdesign1 or TURBOdesign2.
The direct design capabilities of TURBOdesign CAD allows design engineers to modify with ease the blade angle, wrap angle and blade thickness at different streamwise locations. Such modifications can be done in a matter of minutes, without exiting from the TURBOdesign Suite environment and maintaining the possibility to work on a file format which is native to TURBOdesign CFD for immediate evaluation of the designs.
The schematic diagram in shows how TURBOdesign CAD can be implemented within an existing design environment in order to optimize existing designs with TURBOdesign Suite.
