SoftInWay, Inc. Supports Future Engineers Competing in TEKNOFEST 2019

Major turbomachinery software provider donates CAE platform to TEKNOFEST competitors.

Burlington, MA, October 15th, 2019 – SoftInWay, Inc. is proud to announce its sponsorship of more than 130 undergraduates and graduates from universities including İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi and Yıldız Teknik Üniversitesi who took part in the TEKNOFEST Turbofan Motor Design Competition; offering competitors access to the same software tools used by engineers at major companies such as Boeing, Safran, Orbex, Zunum, and Reaction Engines. These students competed in teams to design the best turbofan engine and win up to 50,000. Turkish lira: more than $8,500.00 USD.

Taking place in September 2019 at Istanbul New Airport, the 4-day festival was home to several competitions in addition to the first ever Turbofan Engine Design Competition, including the Mini Jet Radial Compressor Design Competition, Robotics Competitions, and UAV and Fighter-UAV Design Competitions.

Competitors in the Turbofan Engine Design Competition were required to prepare both a preliminary design and final design report. Finalists were then invited to present their results.

Using the AxSTREAM® Preliminary Design module, competitors entered the boundary conditions given and generated a range of dozens to thousands of designs which met the desired parameters. From there, the competitors designed their turbofan engine components in 1D, 2D, and 3D, performing design analysis and optimization along the way. First place went to ETU-Griffon of TOBB ETÜ, who created a 2-spool low-bypass turbofan engine design with an afterburner.

“This competition is and will continue to be a great opportunity for these young engineers in Turkey and around the world. They were able to compete for money, but they also received hands-on experience using a commercial software program implemented into numerous aerospace companies around the world for this exact application. By enabling engineering students to use commercial software for their original designs, the sky is the limit for what they can do. We created AxSTREAM® to foster healthy competition and drive innovation within the industry, giving companies the best tools possible to make revolutionary designs in addition to improving what already exists. These student competitors are getting a head-start on what they can expect in their aerospace engineering careers. We’re very proud of the work they’ve done using AxSTREAM®.” Said Dr. Leonid Moroz, founder and CEO of SoftInWay, Inc.

SoftInWay has a long history of working with educational and research institutes, supporting more than 300 universities around the world with its AxSTREAM® EDU platform. Additionally, SoftInWay has for years sponsored the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics gas turbine competition. Moroz says SoftInWay’s team looks forward seeing what this next generation of engineers accomplishes in the professional world and is happy to have a hand in supporting them.

SoftInWay, Inc. Announces AS9100 Certification

Powerhouse turbomachinery software and consulting firm demonstrates continued commitment to high quality standards for aerospace products and services

Burlington, MA, June 11th, 2019 – SoftInWay, Inc. was recently given the ISO AS9100D certification for its continued commitment to providing high quality goods and services; this achievement further cementing SoftInWay’s reputation as a major service provider in the global aerospace and defense industry. Over the last year, SoftInWay’s staff have undergone the rigorous process of refining its quality management system, which ensures that a supplier in the aerospace industry is providing safe and reliable products and services; as a result of this great undertaking, SoftInWay was able to pass with flying colors on the first audit.

All large aerospace and defense companies around the world including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Safran, GE, Pratt & Whitney, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, and Lockheed Martin as well as government agencies like NASA, the Department of Defense, and the 5 branches of the U.S. Military are often predisposed to work with ISO certified companies to ensure corporate accountability and that their entire supply chain is held to the same rigorous standards for high quality products and reliable service.

The process for becoming ISO certified, specifically AS9100D, requires that a company not only develop and maintain a quality management system, but also undergo multiple audits, both internally developed and external. Customer satisfaction and perception is one of the key requirements, as well as effectiveness, performance, and conformance of all products and services to ISO standards.

For SoftInWay, it means with the help of AxSTREAM® and SoftInWay’s engineering team, our customers can sleep easy knowing that their turbojets, steam turbines, and all other crucial turbomachines are operating at the highest standards for reliability and efficiency.

“This certification serves as a testament to who we are as a company. You do not build a good reputation by cutting corners; you do it by offering the best products and services and accepting nothing less than the best internally. For us, this isn’t the beginning of our entrance into the aerospace and defense industry. We have been designing and developing turbomachines for this industry since we were founded 20 years ago. Instead, the AS9100D certification is recognition that we take pride in our work and stand by what we do. We don’t work on a project with a company and walk away, or sell a software license and wish our customer the best, we work with our clients to ensure every requirement is met. We’ve always dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s; we now have definitive proof of that.” said Valentine Moroz, SoftInWay’s Chief Operating Officer.

SoftInWay’s latest achievement will ensure a bright future for the company as it continues to do business in the aerospace and defense industry among many others, providing high quality solutions for years to come.

SoftInWay and GTI Develop Design for Revolutionary New Engine

Burlington, MA, April 30th, 2019 – SoftInWay, Inc. and GTI announce the concept of a new kind of heat engine with the potential to achieve greater than 65% net electrical or mechanical power-conversion efficiency and provide ultra-low pollutant emissions at a competitive cost. In this DOE-funded project led by GTI, the partners are working together to further the sustainable use of fossil energy (FE) resources and reduce the risk and cost of advanced technologies.

SoftInWay, Inc. and GTI have collaborated to identify the best options for a sub-atmospheric modular hybrid heat engine (MHHE) for FE applications. SoftInWay’s engineers successfully performed thermodynamic cycle simulations, which helped determine the MHHE’s operating regimes. In addition, they designed the compressor and the turbine for low pressure and sub-atmospheric configurations and refined the integrated MHHE layout.

“At the end of the day, our overall goal is the advancement of science and technology. When SoftInWay was founded 20 years ago, our focus was turbomachinery component design. We have since expanded into system level design, creating and optimizing advanced thermodynamic cycles ranging from steam and gas to ORC and supercritical CO2 cycles in power plants. In this project with GTI, we are advancing power generation and improving upon the science and technology already in place. It is important to develop alternative energy options, but it is just as important to improve upon what already exists and continue to innovate, particularly when you are looking at a non-renewable resource like fossil energy. We have to make every bit of it count because so much of the world is depending on it,” said Dr. Leonid Moroz, SoftInWay’s CEO.

“State-of-the-art gas turbine power generators are less efficient relative to other generating technologies, so today’s energy market is looking for more efficient and cost-effective turbines or turbine-based modular hybrid solutions, and GTI’s research and engineering team is responding to market demand. The transformational MHHE concept we are developing represents a smart combination of a high-efficiency sub-atmospheric air turbine and multi-fuel reciprocating internal combustion engine with an advanced humidifying regenerator.

“This approach offers cleaner and more efficient capabilities than existing technologies. The modular heat engines provide flexibility in meeting power requirements because the small scale allows them to be combined to create larger sizes as needed,” said GTI’s project manager Dr. Yaroslav Chudnovsky.

Researchers and engineers from SoftInWay and GTI are focused on advancing the cutting edge in fossil energy-fueled power generation around the world. Thanks to the relatively low construction and operation costs, this project will marry the two ideas of advanced efficiency with competitive manufacturing cost, expanding the accessibility and affordability of power to more people worldwide.
