Playback Webinar: Automatic Optimization of Waste Water Pumps by 3D Inverse Design Method

The demand to reduce the amount of waste water is having considerable impact on design of waste water pumps as the solid content is increased in proportion to amount of water present. At the same time these pumps are required to have high efficiency. So the design of waste water pumps need to meet the contrasting requirements in terms of non-clogging performance, efficiency and sometime even cavitation performance. 

You can from now on get access to the webinar recording on the Automatic Optimization of Waste Water Pumps by 3D Inverse Design Method. In this webinar, we will present a new methodology for design of non-clogging pumps based on coupling 3D inverse design method with an automatic optimizer. The proposed methodology uses the computational speed of 3D inverse design method and the resulting geometrical and flow parameters to create a system for rapid and automatic exploration of the design space so that the contrasting requirements in terms of non-clogging, efficiency and cavitation performance can be met within 1 hour time scale computationally on a single core. 

The process is demonstrated for an actual case with a requirement for 3 inch non-clogging performance. The key geometrical parameters used to ensure non-clogging performance of the design are explained. The performance of the resulting impeller is then assessed for efficiency and cavitation performance.

What awaits you?

The event is free-of charge. In this webinar, you will: 

✔️ Learn how to automatically design waste water pumps to meet non-clogging and performance requirements;

✔️ Discover how the non-clogging parameters can be related to geometry and used as constraints or objectives in optimization;

✔️ Validate how the optimized design generated by the automated process can meet both non-clogging and performance requirements.


Who is it for?

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.
