The customer, one of the world’s largest pump manufacturers, asked ADT to design an inducer to fit in one of their products, a multi-stage centrifugal pump. A designer needs to consider the suction performance of the first stage to make sure that the pump can sustain low inlet pressure without suffering of cavitation and therefore pressure drops vibration and damage.
The design of a turbocharger turbine with good performance still presents a lot of challenges. In this paper we propose an approach based on 3D inverse design method that makes such a design optimization strategy possible under industrial timescales.
TURBOdesign1 can be a valuable tool in designing fans. It’s geometrical parameters are reasonable in realising the usual design specifications, with blade loading being an important parameter for aerodynamic and aeroacoustic optimisation.
The aerodynamic optimization of centrifugal compressors requires better understanding of different sources of loss. In this webinar, we will use entropy production rate to distinguish the different sources of loss in a subsonic and a transonic centrifugal compressor impeller under different operating conditions.
ADT is one of ALPHEUS partners which is a €5m project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program. It will improve reversible pump/turbine (RPT) technology and adjacent civil structures needed to make pumped hydro storage economically viable in shallow seas and coastal environments with flat topography.
In this webinar, we will show how by seamlessly integrating 3D Inverse Design method TURBOdesign1 into Ansys Workbench, turbomachinery designers can rapidly develop breakthrough designs that meet difficult multi-objective, multi-point and multi-disciplinary requirements.
In this webinar, we will show how the new TURBOdesign Suite 2020, a new platform for the design and optimization of turbomachinery, represents a paradigm shift in turbomachinery design and enables engineers to produce breakthrough, high efficiency designs faster than ever before.
