AxSTREAM for Axial and Mixed Flow Compressor and Fan Design
Key Features and Benefits
The scope of axial compressor design and analysis: flow path with normal
(rotor-stator) and single row stages, mixed flow (axial/radial)
flow path, multi-section flow path, flow path with counter-rotating rotors.
Axial compressor flow path preliminary design/sizing/optimization, choosing the optimal number of compressor stages and cascade angles.
Multistage flow path meanline analysis and optimization with support of “as-designed” and “off-design” operational conditions.
Meanline analysis of combined axial-radial compressor flow path.
Turbomachinery flow path throughflow analysis and stage throughflow analysis with search for optimal blade twist using the optimization methods through design cycle in the interactive mode.
Axial compressor analysis and optimization in the “off-designed” mode using the integrated optimizer based on the design-of-experiment (DoE) methodology.
Performance map generation including flow path of variable geometry: vanes/blades rotation schedules.
Generation, interactive editing, and optimization of the cascades. Flow and boundary layer calculation.
3D airfoil design in the automatic and interactive modes with geometric and strength criteria monitoring; 3D fan and compressor blade design with custom lean and sweep.
Custom profiles database.
Reusable axial compressor stages libraries.
Experimentally confirmed empiric and custom loss models.
Embedded fluids library with custom extension option.
Embedded material library with custom extension option.
Export of 3D blade geometry for detailed CFD analysis to NUMECA, CFX, and Fluent solvers; export of properties of fluids in a table for CFD analysis to CFX™.
Export of 3D blade geometry to CAD in IGES formats.
Express 3D structural and modal analysis (including Campbell diagram) of axial compressor blade via embedded FEA module with automatic mesh generation – AxSTRESS.
3D CFD flow analysis via embedded CFD calculation solver AxCFD with automatic mesh generation and post-processing of obtained results.
Flow charts and charts for blade loading on Profiling module.
Detailed Mollier diagram.
1D/2D Streamline solver allows finding compressor surge, stall and choke. It is capable to calculate transonic and subsonic stages of compressor
AxMAP helps develop compressor map and can show dependence of pressure ratio of mass flow and rotation speed.
