ADT STARS in Global Conference 

ADT Sponsors Leading Engineering Simulation Conference in Berlin 

Advanced Design Technology (ADT), a global leader of advanced turbomachinery design methods and the creator of TURBOdesign Suite will sponsor and exhibit at the STAR Global Conference in Berlin on 6-8 March. The STAR Global Conference is an annual celebration of Engineering Simulation, showcasing the latest software developments and applications and exploring all that is required to deliver "Better Designs. Faster." After the recent success of events in 2016, ADT is presenting the latest release of TURBOdesign Suite 6.2.0 – the unique toolset that streamlines further the process of design and optimization of turbomachinery components.

The conference will reveal the future of STAR-CCM+® and HEEDS® within the new Siemens Simcenter, diving further into the world of Multidisciplinary Design eXploration. Leading industrial experts will explain in detail how they use CFD and engineering simulation to shape the products of the future while solving some of the most difficult problems engineering has to offer.

ADT and CD-adapco will deliver a joint presentation on achieving better turbomachinery designs, faster, with TURBOdesign1 (TD1), STAR-CCM+, and HEEDS. The presentation will explore the design space for a fan using TD1 as the design software, STAR-CCM+ as the CFD analysis tool and HEEDS as the design exploration software. The powerful fully parametric features available in TURBOdesign1 enable the direct exploration of a large design space with few parameters. STAR-CCM+ by Siemens PLM provides accurate flow prediction including efficiency and noise, while, HEEDS enables the seamless coupling of TURBOdesign1 and STAR-CCM+ with an algorithm for design space exploration. The insight gained from the design exploration system will help engineers choose the best designs across the complete operating range with efficiency improvements of 20-30%.

The event will provide an opportunity for ADT to demonstrate how the different modules in TURBOdesign suite allow designers to achieve higher-performance and higher-efficiency designs to meet their latest requirements. ADT’s unique inverse-design approach provides designers with direct control of the aerodynamic design process, opening up the design space and frequently leading to “breakthrough” designs. ADT’s clients often report that the insights that designers gain are easily transposed to related applications, spreading the benefits across their product range.

ADT continues to grow their presence in the turbomachinery industry with developing key strategic partners and collaborations. Jim Ryan, Director of Energy & Power at Siemens Product Lifecycle Management Software Inc., commented “I believe their booth presence at our 2017 SGC will help raise awareness for our collaboration, and complement their presentation in our Energy & Power track.  I also believe it will help our new Siemens colleagues to know about the strategic relationship between ADT and Siemens PLM”.

"Maturing efficiency levels in turbomachinery combined with market and legislative pressures to improve performances and reliability, while reducing development costs are straining the limits of the conventional turbomachinery optimization methods” says Prof. Zangeneh, Managing Director of ADT, “3D Inverse Design approaches for turbomachinery optimization can deliver considerable reductions in development costs and times, providing an ideal platform for multidisciplinary turbomachinery design and optimization compatible with industrial development standards."

ADT's specialists will be on hand to show how the use of TURBOdesign Suite inverse design methods simplifies the design process and enables designers to expand their design space.
