We're sorry! This event has already passed. If you are interested in turbomachinery design, we offer the full AxSTREAM workshop here:  AxSTREAM Workshop


Clement Joly, Lead Engineer – Training, Technical Support and Special Projects

Roman Kochurov, PhD -  Lead Mechanical Engineer

Who Should Attend

Mechanical engineers and engineering managers working in turbomachinery design and optimization seeking to learn or refresh/extend their knowledge on flow path design and thermodynamic cycle, cooling system, and rotordynamics analysis while testing out an industry-leading software tool.

Workshop Overview and Objectives

This 1-day workshop offers engineers the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the entire turbomachinery design process by providing them with the instruction and guidance necessary to test out the fully integrated AxSTREAM software platform. Covering everything from flow path design to the machine reliability and their operation in thermodynamic cycles, this workshop takes on a customized approach providing attendees with different session options catered towards the engineer’s specific interests and needs. Topics may include:

  • Preliminary design, meanline and streamline calculations, off-design performance predictions, and multidisciplinary 1D/2D/3D optimization of machine flow path with AxSTREAM®



  • Steam, gas, combined, and organic Rankine cycles as well as optimization of thermal-fluid systems

AxCYCLE - Combined Cycle

  • Optimization of cooling system for turbines and compressors (including blades, nozzles, and so on).


  • Rotor-Bearing systems design and analysis

Bearing + DOE

  • Lateral and torsional analysis

Rotor Dynamics

Engineers can specify their interests during registration. All attendees will receive a confirmation email and additional details.

Workshop Highlights
  • A customizable structure which permits the attendee to focus on his or her specific interest(s).
  • A chance to conceptualize and test out a software platform for a number of different design and analysis functions.
  • A range of both easy and more challenging exercises using the tools provided.
  • Interactions and one-on-one accessibility to SoftInWay instructors.
