Axial Turbine Design Self-Paced Video Course

This comprehensive course program includes 17 hours of lectures (theoretical overview, as well as software demonstrations and explanations related to axial turbines design, analysis and optimization).

The goal of this self-paced course is to provide engineers with a better understanding of steam and gas turbines and help them find new, more accurate, cost-saving solutions through successful axial turbine design and operation tasks.

This course will familiarize attendees with the basics of steam and gas turbine design. The program includes theoretical knowledge as well as hands-on experience with industry-leading software tools (additional option required). It starts with a theoretical overview of turbine thermodynamics, gas dynamics and cycles, to continue with preliminary design, detailed design, analysis and optimization of axial turbines at the 1D, 2D and 3D levels including 3D blade design, FEA and CFD analysis. The program includes SoftInWay’s Axial Turbine Fundamentals course supported by numerous examples and more intensive study of turbine design.

This course is broken down into different sections and chapters with quizzes at the end of each video (about 30 minutes each) to ensure the knowledge presented has been understood, retained and can be effectively applied to engineering challenges.

In addition to the course contents, all video courses include the educational version of AxSTREAM, enabling attendees to follow along with the course.
