AxSTREAM for Radial Turbine Design

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

  • Interactive meridional design of radial turbine stage.

  • Enhancement and optimization of stage radial and meridional dimensions.

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

  • Camberline/Thickness profiling methods with interactive editing.

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

  • Radial stage axisymmetric analysis.

  • Integrated optimizer based on design-of-experiment (DoE) methodology capable of developing radial turbine characteristics curves and searching for optimal solution of multi-criteria problems.

  • Performance map generation.

  • Interactive 3D turbine airfoil design.

  • Capability to export 3D radial turbine 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 radial turbine blade 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).
