SoftInWay to sponsor University of Laval Formula SAE Team for 2015

BURLINGTON, MA, DECEMBER 17, 2014 – SoftInWay Inc. has donated its turbomachinery design and analysis software to the University of Laval Racing team to aid with their participation in several competitions next year. The Formula SAE team of the University of Laval consists of 40 engineering students. Each year, they are tasked with designing, building, and racing a formula-style race car that is powered by an electrical motor.

SoftInWay has donated educational versions of its software, AxSTREAM EDU, to aid the team in developing an axial fan that will increase the performance of the engine’s cooling system. The software will allow the team to simulate the fan, test its efficiency, and ultimately make design improvements before manufacturing.

“We are very excited to be playing a role in the University of Laval Formula SAE team’s car design,” said SoftInWay COO Valentine Moroz, “AxSTREAM will provide the capabilities needed to design, simulate, and improve machine components, and ultimately manufacture an automobile with speed and efficiency.” SoftInWay has begun to work more with automotive companies, expanding its design and analysis capabilities to turbochargers and waste heat recovery systems.

The ULaval team plans to participate in five competitions in 2015: Formula North (Ontario, Canada), Formula Student Germany (FSG0, Toronto Shootout, Formula Student Austria (FSA), and Formula Student Czech Republic. The team will race the top teams in Europe, Canada, and the US.

AxSTREAM and its versions of AxSTREAM EDU and AxSTREAM Lite are currently being used by over 40 universities and 3,000 students worldwide. The software enables students to go beyond the diagram phase of projects to create full-view, three-dimensional machine components.

SoftInWay Inc. to donate AxSTREAM EDU to teams in AIAA/IGTI Engine Design Competition

BURLINGTON, MA, OCTOBER, 20, 2014 – For the third consecutive year, SoftInWay is donating its software to aid teams of students participating in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Undergraduate Team Engine Design Competition.

SoftInWay will be donating educational versions of its software for the design and optimization of turbomachinery – AxSTREAM EDU. Students will be able to utilize the software in tackling this year’s design challenge. The software will enable participants to move beyond the diagram phase of their projects to easily create full-view, three-dimensional machine components. AxSTREAM EDU is used by over 40 universities and 1,000 students around the world.

This year’s competition in centered on producing an ultra-high bypass ration turbofan engine for the future. Teams are being asked to look to 2015 and design the turbofan for entry into service around that time to be used on twin-engine, wide-body passenger and freight aircrafts. The teams’ first goal is to increase propulsive efficiency at cruise conditions and reduce fuel burned as a result.

Teams must take a generic 3-spool model and modify it with their own system, and then demonstrate the improvements. Students will do this using the AxSTREAM EDU software to design, test, and alter their ideas. “AxSTREAM is an ideal platform for this competition as its capabilities are geared toward building and improving turbomachinery,” said SoftInWay CEO, Leonid Moroz, “We are happy to provide the tools these students need to create unique and innovative designs.”

Initial team reports are due March, 2014. First, second, and third place will be decided in April.

Improving turbomachinery design for students of Pusan National University

BURLINGTON, MASS – Beginning next semester, students of Pusan National University will be able to increase their research capabilities by leveraging AxSTREAM. SoftInWay, Korean Simulation Technology and Pusan National University have partnered together to provide students with the industry standard design tool for the College of Engineering.

SoftInWay, Inc., a provider of turbomachinery design software, training and consulting services hopes to demonstrate the importance of turbomachinery flow path design for undergraduate and graduate students in universities across the globe, by equipping them with modern design tools.

One laboratory in particular will leverage the use of AxSTREAM in the university’s technology center to perform extensive research that includes turbines and heat exchangers. Prof. ChangMin Son, deputy director for the Rolls-Royce-Pusan National University Technology Center (UTC) chose AxSTREAM as the best tool his students.

“For the current and developing research projects underway at UTC, the use of AxSTREAM will be very beneficial to my students. AxSTREAM was chosen for its straight-forward design which is easy to use and very accurate with performance and calculations. This will have a huge impact on our entire design process,” said Son.

“I’m looking very forward to working with Pusan National University. They are an internationally top-ranked school and I know they will come out with some compelling research. I anticipate that their students will benefit from using our software,” said Dr. Leonid Moroz, CEO of SoftInWay.

Education is important to SoftInWay and its partners. Currently, AxSTREAM and its software family have over 150 customers worldwide with over 30 international universities that teach turbomachinery using AxSTREAM.

With the implementation of design software in the classroom continuing to grow, SoftInWay is hopeful that the demand for more designers in the industry will be met substantially, and students will meet job requirements before they are hired in the workforce.

New AxCYCLE™ Software Release Optimizes Waste Heat Recovery Cycles

BURLINGTON, MASS – SoftInWay, Inc., an international engineering firm specializing in turbomachinery consulting, education and software has officially announced the latest features for AxCYCLE, with the release of version 2.3. With this update, the system’s new tools are available to all users, but waste heat recovery application engineers, particularly in the automotive industry, should take notice.

AxCYCLE offers ultrafast and reliable calculations for heat balance and thermodynamic simulations. The product, released back in late September 2013, was under development for the last few months to focus on several key features.

One major development is an extended and comprehensive fluid library that will help engineers develop more models and cycles specifically tailored for waste heat recovery for internal combustion engines. Users will also experience improved mapping functionalities and graphics and be able to run multipoint analysis for different operating conditions.

AxCYCLE also contains a built-in OEM internal combustion engine library and an OEM gas turbine library; both of which can be customized.

“We listened to what our clients had to say. They told us they needed a library of engines and now we’re providing it. But we’re also giving more. We are proud to say we are the first to deliver these capabilities to the waste heat recovery industry. We’ve developed the capability to work with all major fluids which are utilized in waste heat recovery systems and we created a visualized infrastructure to track changes in fluid conditions during the expansion and compression processes. It’s a simplified process for choosing the right range of operation of machinery,” said Dr. Leonid Moroz, president and CEO of SoftInWay, Inc.

This software release is in full operation now and SoftInWay is offering a free 30 day trial to new users through the AxCYCLE website, www.axcycle.com.
