TURBOdesign Suite 2023.2: Enhancements and New Features

TURBOdesign Suite is a unique aerodynamic and hydrodynamic 3D design software package that allows users to design, analyze and optimize all types of turbomachinery, such as axial, mixed-flow, or centrifugal pumps, compressors, fans, turbines and torque converters. Using the software, designers evaluate turbomachinery package size and performance predictions, perform detailed 3D blade design with 3D inverse design capabilities, analyze flow information per component, stage performances with turbomachinery specific 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and automate exploration of the design space with automatic optimization capabilities.

In this article, we will highlight the major new features and enhancements in the 2023.2 release such as a Sirocco Fan module in TD-Pre, Rectangular Volute in TD-Volute, Reactive Response Surface optimization integrated in TURBOdesign1, Direct CAE/CFD connection to run CFX/CCM+ directly from TURBOdesign1 and more.


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”.
- Professor Mehrdad Zangeneh, Founder and Managing Director of ADT.


New Features in TURBOdesign Suite 2023.2

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

CAE Integration
will enable any 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 massive CFD database to improve the loss models in TURBOdesign Pre. Furthermore, the automatic export of TURBOdesign1 geometry from the meanline code TURBOdesign Pre now is benefiting from an optimized data base of blade loading which should mean that the initial design in TURBOdesign1 should be optimized. TURBOdesign Pre will also show meridional area variations for all modules of the meanline design code. 

TURBOdesign1 has additional new features such as 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.
