Global TURBOdesign Symposium 2017

ADT – Global TURBOdesign Symposium


ADT – Global TURBOdesign Symposium | London | 6th & 7th November, 2017  

ADT’s Global TURBOdesign Symposium will be held on November 6th and 7th, 2017 at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury in Central London, UK. The event will bring together ADT customers, partners, and designers interested in the unique capabilities of 3D inverse design technology applied to the design and optimization of turbomachinery components. The symposium will be a unique opportunity for TURBOdesign users to share their experiences, learn about cutting-edge TURBOdesign solutions from industrial leaders in their field, and gain an in-depth understanding of the latest features of the software and its planned future developments.


Symposium Preliminary Programme

The event will be held over 2 days, with morning and afternoon sessions focusing on current customer applications using TURBOdesign. There will also be short presentations by ADT staff with updates on the latest TURBOdesign features and functionalities, as well as on rapid multi-disciplinary/multi-objective optimization, on CAE integration and on the development of TURBOdesign’s adjoint capability. The afternoon of the second day will include a short presentation on TURBOdesign’s future development roadmap. A TURBOdesign open “clinic” will be run throughout the second day, to allow attendees to seek advice on their applications from ADT experts. These “clinic” sessions will be by appointment only, so early booking is advisable given the limited number of slots available. An open clinic booking “board” will be available in the break-out area.
