ADT Unveils Major New Features and Enhancements in TURBOdesign 2023.2 Release

Posted By: Ali Panchoo
Date:Fri, 29 Sep 2023, 4:37 p.m.

London, UK - Advanced Design Technology, Ltd., a leading turbomachinery design software company, announces the release of its latest software version, TURBOdesign Suite 2023.2, which includes a range of new features and enhancements aimed at improving the efficiency and automation of the turbomachinery design process.

The latest release includes two notable features: 1. Direct CAE integration with Ansys CFX and Siemens CCM+ 2. Reactive Response Surface (RRS) optimizer.

The Reactive Response Surface now integrated with TURBOdesign1 is one of the most advanced optimizers available today, which together with the unique features of 3D inverse design-based optimization enables rapid and accurate multi-objective optimization with very few design evaluations.

The CAE Integration function will enable a TURBOdesign1 case to be automatically meshed with the most suitable mesh topology in Ansys CFX or Siemens CCM+ and then run in these CFD codes and the results automatically post processed and returned to TURBOdesign1 and also an HTML report with all relevant information and plots from the CFD codes.

TURBOdesign Pre has a new Sirocco fan (forward curved blower) module and also comprehensive unit support. The centrifugal pump loss models were enhanced by using a new data mining system which used a CFD database to improve the loss models in TURBOdesign Pre.

Furthermore, the automatic export of TURBOdesign1 case from the meanline code TURBOdesign Pre now benefits from an optimized database of blade loading which means that the initial design in TURBOdesign1 is closer to the optimized solution. TURBOdesign Pre will also show meridional area variations for all modules of the meanline design code. The automatic meridional geometry parametric export for all machine types from TURBOdesign Pre has been improved and also now supports line sections.

TURBOdesign1 has additional new features such as the possibility to specify mass flow rate in addition to volume flow rate for compressible cases, improved geometry construction/export for high-pressure axial turbines, meridional geometry scaling function as well as the functionality to compare multiple cases from an optimization Pareto front in TURBOdesign1 project view.

TURBOdesign Volute can now export full manufacturing-ready volute geometry with specified wall thickness as well as support for a comprehensive unit system. TURBOdesign Volute also now supports exit ducts with rectangular cross sections.

All TURBOdesign Suite modules can automatically support the regional settings of Windows 11.

To showcase some of the new functionalities, ADT will host a webinar with the example of a centrifugal pump. The webinar will demonstrate how the new features and enhancements in 2023.2 including the new RRS optimizer coupled with CAE integration can streamline the optimization of turbomachinery stages.

“The coupling of an advanced optimization system such as Reactive Response Surface together with automatic CAE integration should enable efficient and rapid optimization of turbomachinery for complicated multi-objective designs", said Professor Mehrdad Zangeneh, Founder and managing director of Advanced Design Technology
