Burlington, MA – December 16, 2011: Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China) has adopted AxSTREAM educational version to teach the turbomachinery design. The University and SoftInWay Inc. signed a software license agreement according to which the Educational Version of AxSTREAM (AEV) will be incorporated into the curriculum, helping students to gain a better and real-life understanding of the basic principles of turbine/compressor design and optimization.
AxSTREAM Educational Version is meant for design, analysis, multidisciplinary optimization and retrofitting of axial, radial, counter-rotating and mixed flow configurations of the flow path. It consists of modules for preliminary design, 1D/2D analysis, flow path multidisciplinary optimization, airfoil profiling, 3D blade stacking and 3D FEA/CFD analysis. For several years AEV has been helping students to learn theoretical basis, explore the main steps of real flow path design process and gain practical skills of designing.
In addition to being chosen by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, AxSTREAM Educational Version is successfully used by Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Moscow Aviation Institute (Russia), Kaluga Branch of Bauman Moscow State Technical University (Russia), Pennsylvania State University (USA), Tsinghua University (China), Namik Kemal University (Turkey), Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding (Ukraine) and many other schools worldwide.
AxSTREAM version for academia is available for axial / radial turbines and compressors, and can be ordered via http://www.softinway.com/education/axstream-educational-version.asp.
