Gas Turbine Design Technologies - Software and Services

SoftInWay has extensive experience with Gas Turbine design and optimization. From our flagship software platform AxSTREAM® to AxCYCLE™, designed for the thermodynamic simulation and heat balance calculations of heat production and electric energy cycles, to our extensive engineering consultant services, you can rest assured that all your project needs will be met by our engineering experts. 

AxSTREAM® for Gas Turbine Design

The AxSTREAM platform is a multidisciplinary turbomachinery design, analysis and optimization software tool.  AxSTREAM® progresses through a 1D inverse task solver optimizer, to continue with meanline (1D) and axisymmetric (2D) analysis, profiling and 3D blade design, 3D finite element analysis (FEA) for structural calculations, secondary air flow hydraulic and thermal calculations, rotor design, bearing analysis, rotor dynamics and 3D CFD calculations. All of this is integrated into one gas turbine design software package with a seamless user interface.

AxSTREAM provides full design and analysis cycles for gas turbine projects in a flexible and integrated environment. The tasks a user can solve with AxSTREAM® include:

  • Design new gas turbine machines from scratch
  • Analyze existing gas turbines and their performance at design and off-design conditions
  • Redesign, optimize and upgrade existing gas turbines
  • Reverse engineer gas turbine designs
AxCYCLE™ for Gas Turbine Optimization 

AxCYCLE™ from SoftInWay lets you model every phase of the design for power generation for transportation systems with gas turbine cycle analysis.  For each component, the user only needs to set or specify several main parameters, and once complete, the user will automatically obtain updated results for other components from the scheme. AxCYCLE™ for gas turbine cycles allows for:

  • Integrated in the design process
  • Input of mandatory data to get the turbomachinery elements’ boundary conditions as cycle results almost instantaneously
  • Generate automated, printer-friendly reports
  • Results can be saved to be used in AxSTREAM® for design purposes
  • Compressor pressure raise at design point, fuel combustion lower heat, turbine rotational speed, etc. can be specified
  • Fuel lower heating value
