Fan and Centrifugal Compressor Design with AxSTREAM

Key Features and Benefits
  • Mixed axial/radial flow path design "from scratch" using a small number of basic parameters and a set of geometric constraints.

  • Corporate-value features: loadable custom-defined fluid models, loss models and material databases.

  • Camberline/Thickness interactive profiling.

  • Meanline analysis of multistage mixed axial/radial compressor flow path using as-designed and off-design operational conditions.

  • Integrated multi-variant optimizer capable of developing centrifugal compressor maps and searching for optimal solution.

  • Performance map generation for more effective fan and centrifugal compressor design.

  • Capability to export 3D compressor airfoil geometry in formats acceptable for Numeca, CFX, etc. CFD solvers and in IGES format for CAD/CAE packages.

  • Express structural and modal analysis of centrifugal compressor via embedded FEA module with automatic mesh generation.

  • Express 3D flow analysis via embedded FEA potential flow solver with automatic mesh generation.

  • Detailed Mollier diagram.

  • Charts for blade loading on Profiling and AxFLOW (Eulier).

  • Availability of section of 3D domain (AxSTRESS, AxFLOW), Campbell diagram (AxSTRESS).

  • 1D/2D Streamline solver allows finding compressor surge, stall and choke. It is capable to calculate transonic and subsonic stages of compressor.

  • AxMAP helps develop compressor map and can show dependence of pressure ratio of mass flow and rotation speed.
