TURBOdesign Optima

Direct Coupling of Optima and Inverse Design

Coupling TURBOdesign Optima and TURBOdesign1 with MOGA is the ideal process for fast multi-objective turbomachinery design optimization at the design point.

 

Why Direct Coupling?

A fast and effective large space design exploration to evaluate trade-offs between contrasting design requirements.

Coupling TURBOdesign1 with MOGA

TURBOdesign Optima Workflow 1 allows immediate and direct coupling of TURBOdesign1 with NSGA-II Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm (MOGA) for rapid multi-objective turbomachinery design optimization at design point.

This approach employs the key features of 3D inverse design to provide designers with an immediate way to explore the design space and position themselves at the right point of the Pareto Front for turbomachinery design optimization.

Key Advantages

The blade specific work is automatically satisfied for each and every design without need of CFD calculation;

The computational time of TURBOdesign1 for any design is typically less than a few seconds, which allows a well defined Pareto Front to be generated in less than an hour on a local workstation;

TURBOdesign Optima provides direct control over a number of geometrical and mechanical parameters that can be used as either constraints or design objectives in the turbomachinery design optimization process.
