A new year brings new beginnings: SoftInWay launches brand new turbomachinery training courses to its curriculum

BURLINGTON, MASS – As the year winds down yet the holidays just begin, SoftInWay Inc. is at it once again. The new training schedule has been released and for the next two quarters, SoftInWay is providing even more relevant and popular topics that apply to the sector.

Now, engineering professionals can either choose to stay at the office or visit one of four cities – Boston (United States), Bangalore (India), Zug (Switzerland) or Dusseldorf (Germany) – to participate in one of SoftInWay’s comprehensive and beneficial resources.

Two new courses will be implemented; one is available online and in the classroom, and is comprised of designing waste heat recovery systems for improving energy efficiencies in existing and new energy intensive systems. This comprehensive course gives an in-depth insight into cycle analysis and turbine engineering, starting from general discussion like energy systems and opportunities for waste heat recovery and ending with complete design of flow path and 3D blades for the turbine with attachments. The second course is a two day online course over AxCYCLE, their recently-released heat balance calculation tool.

Each course is designed to meet the demands of the engineering industry by providing theory and hands-on experience in turbomachinery flow path. Engineers who are involved in the design and retrofitting of flow paths of turbines, compressors, fans, turbochargers, pumps and thermodynamic cycles are encouraged to join. Current users of AxSTREAM and/or AxCYCLE are also encouraged to join so they can enhance their skills further with the powerful design, analysis and optimization tool.

Students compete to be the best by using the right tools

BURLINGTON, MASS – For the second year, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronauts and the ASME International Gas Turbine Institute are co-launching their undergrad team competition for conceptual engine designs – and many of these undergrads will be using AxSTREAM.

SoftInWay, in partnership with Dr. Ian Halliwell, the coordinator for the event, is providing special free licenses for its design and optimization software to students involved in the competition. AxSTREAM EDU, an educational version of the company’s flagship software, provides students with a set of design tools equivalent to those used in industry, to enrich their educational experience.

This year’s engine design competition addresses candidate engines for a supersonic business jet, which would allow travel from Europe to North America and back within one business day. Up to twenty international student teams are expected to compete in the first round of the competition. They have until April 2014 to submit their proposals and the best three teams will be invited to present their work before a second panel of judges at the AIAA Propulsion & Energy Forum in July to determine the final finishing order.

“I taught gas turbine engine design for over 20 years and my classes always had to stop when we got to velocity diagrams because tools were not available that enabled detailed blade design to be considered within the duration of the course. AxSTREAM changed all that because it offered a rapid and easy way to look at blade shapes and the flow fields around them; it allows students to design 3-dimensional airfoils for multi-stage turbines and compressors,” said Halliwell.

AxSTREAM and its versions of AxSTREAM EDU and AxSTREAM Lite are currently implemented in over 40 university curriculums with over 1,000 users worldwide. This will be the second year that SoftInWay is partnering with Dr. Halliwell to provide free licenses to students who compete in the joint AIAA/ASME Team Engine Design Competition.
