The AxSTREAM suite of multidisciplinary design, analysis and optimization
software provides an integrated and streamlined solution that encompasses
the complete process of conceptual flow path design for both radial and axial
turbomachinery (turbines, compressors, fans, blowers, turbopumps etc).
Starting from preliminary design (calculating basic cylinder performance
from a few simple parameters), AxSTREAM proceeds through inverse and direct
1D analysis, 2D axisymmetric analysis, planes sections profiling, 3D profiling
of the airfoils, finite element analysis, then to export of the results to 3D
CFD programs. AxSTREAM is professional turbomachinery design software that
reduces the engineering cycle from months to weeks and from weeks to days.
AxSTREAM is constructed on a modular foundation so it is ideally suited
to be a complete stand-alone preliminary design tool or complement and enhance
your current PD tools.
On August 24th, we released AxSTREAM Lite – a free version of AxSTREAM, available to all current turbomachinery engineering students.
