Webinar Title Abstract Recording
Key Advantages of 3D Inverse Design in Turbomachinery Design Process

This introductory session to 3D inverse design highlights the benefits many of ADT customers are experiencing after integration of TURBOdesign Suite in the design process. Particular emphasis is given to a number of breakthrough designs achieved on a wide range of applications, such as pumps, compressors, fans and turbines.

Watch
TURBOdesign Suite 5.2

This webinar outlines new features and important functionalities in TURBOdesign Suite 5.2 including TURBOdesign Volute, TURBOdesign cfd, TURBOdesign1 and TURBOdesign Optima.

Watch
TURBOdesign Volute

TURBOdesign Volute introduces a novel approach to volute design for compressible and incompressible flows which allows for more practical and faster volute design cycles, eliminating most of the traditional CAD volute design work.

Pump Series

Webinar Title Abstract Recording
Choice of Optimal blade loading for centrifugal and mixed flow pumps

This session highlights the main flow features in pump impellers, identify the main sources of hydrodynamic loss and provide guidance in the choice of optimal blade loading to suppress particular flow phenomena, such as secondary flows in impeller, corner separation in diffusers or cavitation in impellers.

Watch
Design Centrifugal and Mixed-Flow Pumps for Optimal Blade Loading

This session provides a demonstration of the ease of TURBOdesign Suite and the 3D Inverse Design approach for the design of centrifugal and mixed-flow pumps aimed at suppressing some of the main sources of hydrodynamic loss such as secondary flows, diffuser corner separation and cavitation performance.

Watch
Multi-objective Optimization of Pumps

This one hour demonstration webinar will demonstrate application of 3D inverse design code TURBOdesign1 coupled with automatic optimization code TURBOdesign Optima to multi-objective and multi-point design optimization of mixed-flow and centrifugal pumps.

Watch
Evolutions in pump design using TURBOdesign Suite

In this webinar we will demonstrate how TURBOdesign Suite removes the bottlenecks in design between CAD and CFD and helps designers to achieve innovative designs efficiently.

Watch
Reducing pump stage hydrodynamic losses through 3D inverse design

In this webinar we review the major sources of loss in centrifugal and mixed flow pump stages and demonstrate how these can be controlled directly by choice of design specification in TURBOdesign Suite.

Watch
Controlling cavitation in pumps

In this webinar the choice of design specification to control cavitation will be discussed and demonstrated with reference to mixed and centrifugal pumps. Inducers will also be covered in this demonstration.

Watch
Advanced inverse volute design

This webinar will demonstrate a novel approach to volute design where the volute area distribution is calculated subject to a specified non-uniform inlet velocity distribution from the impeller. Detailed flow analysis and performance comparisons between volutes designed in TURBOdesign and conventional 1D methods will be presented and discussed.

Watch
Compact pump design and reduction of manufacturing costs

In this webinar we will demonstrate how TURBOdesign Suite can enable the designer to design more compact pump stages with the same performance and thus reduce manufacturing costs.
