Integration and automation are two widely acknowledged concepts in the development of modern technology. It comes as no surprise that companies can thrive on the reduction of manual intervention which can be achieved by integrating and standardizing the engineering workflow and automating the data transfer among various engineering processes. Using this approach, non-essential recurring tasks (and subsequent time and expenses) are significantly reduced and a lean engineering process can be achieved.
When it comes to detailed turbomachinery design, a robust approach is even more critical, as the process is multi-faceted, and there are tight checks that must be followed for the design to be viable. With this in mind, it is inevitable for any OEM in this field to not only standardize and integrate all their processes, but also to focus on their core competency of developing equipment as opposed to coding. Use of specialized software developed and supported by a single vendor is a key here. SoftInWay provides this advantage with its fully integrated AxSTREAM® Suite, which encompasses the complete process for radial, axial and mixed flow turbomachinery design all in a seamless platform. Additionally, tools for secondary flow analysis, cycle design, rotor dynamics analysis etc. can also be easily combined in a single loop that runs from start to finish without much intervention.
In this webinar, we will discuss the importance and benefits of a modernized approach to the standard engineering process. We will explore several case studies and examples utilizing AxSTREAM® and AxSTREAM ION™ for turbomachinery design and process integration/automation to easily run what-if scenarios and adapt previously completed projects for future developments. Be it the off-design and off-load study of a power plant, or the secondary flow and cooling flow simulation in gas turbines, we will see how any complex engineering problem can be solved in a fraction of the time and cost when compared to traditional development methods.
The scope includes:
- Introduction to common challenges present in the development of modern day technology
- Benefits of automation and integration in the scope of turbomachinery component and system design
- Introduction to AxSTREAM and AxSTREAM ION™ for facilitating lean methods in turbomachinery design and retrofitting.
- Several case studies implementing process automation into turbomachinery simulation
