Online Event: Technology Day CASCON CFD Turbomachinery with ADT, CAFDEM & iSimQ

You're invited to a free online event on Wednesday, May 19 from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm to know more on the development of different type of pumps and hydraulic turbines.

New possibilities for the design of francis turbines for hydraulic power applications as well as a method for configurating wastewater pumps – i.e. centrifugal pumps able to handle fluids containing solid matter – will be presented during this event. An overview about characteristic requirements for pumps, fans and compressors will also be given.

We will go through a multi-objective optimization of a radial fan with the help of TURBOdesign Suite and Ansys CFD tools. Furthermore, the simulation of transient effects, as typical for off-design operating points, for a centrifugal pump will be presented.

TURBOdesign Suite is an innovative tool based on a β€œ3D inverse design” approach,  which derives optimal blade shapes from flow properties. Our 3D Inverse Design method can be used to rapidly design pumps, compressors, fans, turbines and torque converters that deliver optimum performance. The integration into Ansys workbench allows sophisticated workflows for complex design tasks.CAFDEM_speakers

The event addresses all engineers, developers or researchers dealing with turbomachinery design. The method is interesting for small and medium companies as well as enterprises. You will get detailed insight into multiple possibilities for turbomachinery design, analysis and optimization using TURBOdesign Suite and Ansys CFD. Detailed simulation examples of Radial pumps and fans will be discussed, and new methods for Francis Turbines and wastewater pumps are demonstrated.
