TEI Selects AxSTREAM to Develop the Aircraft Engine Industry in Turkey

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, September 18, 2009. SoftInWay Inc., a global provider of turbomachinery design software and training, announces a contract with Tusas Engine Industry Inc., a joint venture between GE, TAI, TSKGV and THK, to use the AxSTREAM software suite for turbomachinery flow path design, analysis and multidisciplinary optimization. TEI has selected AxSTREAM to take advantage of the latest in engineering technology while designing new aircraft engines.

To develop an optimized flow path for aircraft engines with respect to geometric constraints, an advanced software solution is needed. That is why TEI, one of the leading aerospace companies in Turkey, gave preference to AxSTREAM which allows conceptual design of the complete flow path and improves engineering productivity.

The AxSTREAM software suite ensures an integrated and streamlined solution that embraces the full process of turbomachinery flow path design, including preliminary design, inverse and direct 1D/2D analysis and optimization, 3D profiling/stacking of the airfoils, 3D FEA and CFD analysis, and export of the results to 3D CAD/CFD/FEA programs. According to the contract, TEI will use AxSTREAM for axial compressors and turbines.

“We strongly believe that AxSTREAM will add to our existing design capabilities for advanced technology components in our engine projects.” – said Ali Dinç, TEI Design Engineering Manager.

“By selecting AxSTREAM, TEI recognizes the value of engineering software in the design of cost-effective and highly-performance machines, – said Leonid Moroz, President and CEO of SoftInWay. – The TEI team represents an excellent mix of youth and experience, and we are honored that AxSTREAM was chosen to develop a new generation of top-level aircraft engines required by TEI’s customers.”

“We have worked extensively with TEI engineers to show benefits of AxSTREAM in the design process. We will continue to support AxSTREAM users for their success.” – said Mr. Aydin Kuntay, General Manager of Eksen Engineering, distributor of SoftInWay in Turkey.

Penn State Has Adopted AxSTREAM Software to Teach Turbomachinery Design

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, August 3, 2009. SoftInWay Inc. and the Pennsylvania State University have signed an agreement about the incorporation of the educational version of AxSTREAM software for turbomachinery flow path design, optimization and analysis into the University’s curriculum.

According to this software license agreement, students from the Penn State Engineering Department will be able to learn the basics of turbomachinery flow path design using AxSTREAM. The software includes modules for preliminary design, 1D/2D analysis, design and multidisciplinary optimization of flow path, profiling, 3D blade stacking and 3D FEA/CFD analysis. AxSTREAM Educational Version supports four types of machines: axial turbine, axial compressor, radial turbine and radial compressor.

As a result of this AxSTREAM course, the Penn State students will gain a practical understanding of the design and optimization of axial/radial turbomachinery that will become a good educational background and raise their competitiveness in the engineering job market.

Today AxSTREAM Educational Version is successfully used by the teaching community worldwide. Only in the first part of 2009 three universities were granted access to the educational suite: Tsinghua University (China), Namik Kemal University (Turkey) and Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding (Ukraine).

“We are honored to partner with the Pennsylvania State University, as it is one of the world’s leading universities in turbomachinery design, widely-known for its College of Engineering,” – stated Leonid Moroz, President and CEO of SoftInWay Inc. – “Our relationship with Penn State is critical for both parties, as we firmly believe that AxSTREAM will add depth to the turbomachinery teaching process and help students develop the skills they will need for rewarding engineering careers.”

Dr. Horacio Perez-Blanco, Professor of Mechanical Engineering who has more than 30 years of teaching experience, commented upon the adoption of AxSTREAM: “We are pleased to announce our agreement to employ AxSTREAM for teaching Gas Turbines and Turbomachinery during the academic year F09-SP10, as this software covers the advanced design aspects that other courses don’t. From my expertise, after the students have completed hand calculations for one stage, it is ideal for teaching multiple stage design, as meanline analysis is the appropriate introductory description to the topic, and AxSTREAM produces meanline and streamline analysis of axial and radial turbomachines, given suitable boundary conditions. Besides, instruction of 3D aspects of design with the sole aid of the blackboard and projector is a vexing endeavor, requiring much visualization and adoption of hypothesis concerning the flow behavior, while AxSTREAM allows ready visualization and modification of the spanwise shape distribution. We project that students will gain a much better understanding of 3D considerations using the visual and analytical tools provided by SoftInWay.”

AxSTREAM Educational Version is available for purchase on a yearly or quarterly license version through SoftInWay website https://www.softinway.com/education/axstream-educational-version.asp.

SoftInWay Appoints EURO/CFD as a Distributor to Promote AxSTREAM Turbomachinery Design Software in France

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, August 3, 2009. SoftInWay Inc., a world provider of turbomachinery design software and training, announces that EURO/CFD, a France-based company specializing in CFD and numerical simulations, has become its distributor to expand the company’s presence in the French market of engineering software. This agreement will result in EURO/CFD developing SoftInWay’s sales network in the country and enabling French engineers to access the latest in turbomachinery design technology using AxSTREAM – the core product of SoftInWay.

With today’s over-growing development of the numerical simulation industry in the world and the lack of professionals having multisector and multidisciplinary experience, there is a trend to find new and effective tools to address these engineering challenges. To overcome these challenges, SoftInWay developed AxSTREAM which allows one to achieve optimized design results very quickly.

AxSTREAM is a software suite for design, redesign, analysis and multidisciplinary optimization of axial and radial turbomachinery flow paths. Starting from preliminary design, AxSTREAM performs inverse and direct 1D/2D analysis and optimization, 3D profiling/stacking of the airfoils, 3D FEA and CFD, and, finally, exports the results to 3D CAD programs. Extremely user-friendly, it allows engineers to considerably reduce the design time without sacrificing the accuracy of calculations.

Vincent Soumoy, EURO/CFD Sales Manager, explained the company’s position: “EUTO/CFD has numerous contacts in the turbomachinery industry who will certainly be interested in the AxSTREAM software suite. One of the key benefits of AxSTREAM is that it allows a complete calculation of rotating machinery parameters, providing a fast, accurate and highly-predictable solution. It is also finely tuned to export the results to the commercial 3D CFD programs. Overall, I think AxSTREAM will be in high demand here in France.”

“We are confident that EURO/CFD will be efficient in presenting the AxSTREAM software suite in the highly competitive French market and help SoftInWay reach new European clients,” – added Leonid Moroz, SoftInWay President and CEO.
