ADT and Engineous Japan Inc Plan a Joint Consortium

08 January 2007

Advanced Design Technology Ltd (ADT) and Engineous Japan Inc (EJI) plan a multi-sponsor consortium on development of methodology for multi-objective/multi-point turbomachinery aerodynamics design

Commercial Release of TURBOcfd Announced

01 February 2006

The application of CFD codes in the turbomachinery blade design process, even if inverse design methods such as TURBOdesign-1 are employed, play an important role in highlighting loss mechanisms in presence of viscous effects. In addition they can be used to provide estimates of the overall design characteristic including efficiency and head variation with flow rates. Increasingly CFD codes are relied for qualitative assessment of noise in fans and cavitation in pumps.

Commercial Release Of TURBOdesign-2 Announced

12 February 2005

TURBOdesign-2 is an Aerodynamic design code for application to turbomachinery blades; the software is based on a 3D viscous transonic inverse design method. TURBOdesign-2 has been developed mainly for the design of turbomachinery components such as transonic fans where shock and boundary layer interaction effects are significant. 

Development News on TURBOdesign-2

10 January 2005

TURBOdesign-2 is a 3D viscous transonic inverse design code which was developed as part of a consortium sponsored by Rolls Royce, Fiat Avio, Kawasaki Heavy Industry, Toshiba, Toyota and Ebara Corporation. The code accounts for viscous effects and can capture shock waves. The code was developed in particular for applications such as transonic fans in which most of the pressure rise (at least near the tip) comes from the shockwave and shock capturing is essential.
