New Axial Turbine Design and Optimization Course Now Available
SoftInWay Inc., a developer of AxSTREAMTM — a powerful turbine design software suite that encompasses the complete engineering process of steam/gas axial turbine flow path, is pleased to announce "Axial Turbine Design and Optimization" downloadable course for independent and classroom studies. A new study program focuses on steam/gas turbine flow path design and optimization and includes training manual and AxSTREAM� Educational Version 3-months license.
This practice- and design-oriented course is based on overall 400+ years of experience in turbine design and engineering of SoftInWay’s team.
Upon course completion, a student should be able to:
Design flow path based on given overall requirements according to engine application (determine an appropriate geometry, number of stages (within the limitations imposed), and distribution of blade angles);
Assess design interactions between aerodynamic, mechanical integrity and blade cooling requirements for any separate stage;
Perform design optimization for both high pressure and low pressure turbine stages, encompassing 1D direct problem computation of multistage flow path and 2D direct problem computation of an individual stage;
Search for optimal twist law of relatively long blades;
Profile plain cascades with regard to aerodynamic criteria;
Perform 3D blade design with different lean and sweep
Spanning a concepts-to-details process of axial turbine design and retrofitting, the course will enrich students with application-oriented guidelines for new and existing turbine flow path designs along with techniques of design and optimization for the entire flow path.
