3-Day Training Workshop for Professional Designers

This  training provides participants with a practical understanding of the design and optimization of flow paths for turbomachinery equipment using AxSTREAM™. During this interactive, hands-on workshop, engineers will use AxSTREAM™ software to successfully perform preliminary design of turbomachinery flow paths, inverse and direct 1D/2D analysis and optimization, 3D profiling/stacking of the airfoils, 3D FEA and CFD, and export of results to 3D CAD programs.

The training includes break-out sessions, one-on-one design consultation with our SoftInWay teachers and review of actual test cases. Each student can choose a particular track of study based on his or her specific interests:

  • Axial and radial turbomachinery (comprehensive overview)
  • Axial turbine
  • Axial compressor
  • Centrifugal compressor
  • Radial turbine
  • Retrofitting and performance upgrades
  • The course program can be customized according to the participants’ needs

For each training workshop, SoftInWay invites guest speakers – world-recognized authorities in the field of turbomachinery – which enables attendees to access the latest in engineering technology from industry leaders.

On completion of the course, participants will be able to design and optimize a complete flow path from basic boundary condition data and receive a free 30 day trial license of AxSTREAM™.

The scope includes:

  • Theory of turbomachinery design from conceptual to reality, and the role of AxSTREAM™ in the design process.
  • Features and major design parameters of axial and radial turbomachinery
  • How to use AxSTREAM™ to design an optimized flow path from preliminary design to generation of 3D blade profiles. (For both original design and redesign of existing equipment.)

“The course provided by SoftInWay Inc, fulfilled, and in addition, surpassed our requirements/expectations. After a thorough update on the theoretical part, the in-house program of SoftInWay Inc., AxSTREAM, was interactively demonstrated by practical test cases, which were accompanied by extensive course material & illustrations. This is an intensive course which I can recommend to anyone in need of theoretical & practical knowledge on turbines.”
