About Advanced Design Technology

Grey (Generic)


Advanced Design Technology is a global market leader in advanced inverse design software. Our technology optimizes performance, increases efficiency and reduces development time of turbomachinery components. 

Our unique TURBOdesign software is designed to empower designers with full control of aerodynamic design to revolutionize your turbomachinery components. The 3D inverse design process enables designers to have direct control of the flow field to avoid time-consuming and costly trial-error experiments. Designers can generate new shapes and ideas in a matter of minutes to rapidly achieve optimum performance.

Our clients represent some of the leading companies in the aerospace, automotive, power generation and marine fields have achieved significant returns on investment in terms of reduced design time, higher performance and ease of know-how transfer between different design teams and projects. The features of TURBOdesign create a competitive advantage for your business to maximize your technology performance.

ADT established in 1999 as a joint venture between University College London and The Ebara Research Co. Limited of Japan. Before the establishment of ADT, the joint venture parties were involved in a comprehensive R&D collaboration for 9 years with the application of the 3D Inverse Design Code TURBOdesign1 to Centrifugal Compressors, Pumps, and Axial Turbines.

We are a talented group of engineers and developers, many of whom are expert M.S. and pH. D. level engineers, who use our skills and industry experience to design or redesign a large number of turbomachinery components or whole machines.
