BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, December 3, 2008. SoftInWay has launched a new release 188.8.131.52 of AxSTREAM™ Turbomachinery Flow Path Design, Analysis and Optimization Software. Release 184.108.40.206, focused on optimizing turbomachinery and smoothing the design process, essentially combines the enhanced features of previous AxSTREAM versions with the latest developments of SoftInWay.
One of the key innovations introduced to the new release is an advanced Euler flow solver. The solver’s main objective is to rapidly define 3D flow path characteristics. Easy to use, it allows users to control/change mesh quality, to use previous calculation steps results as initial values for new calculations and to calculate the whole stage. Besides, the new Euler solver uses constant MFR in calculation, improves calculation accuracy through more accurate approximation in finite-elements and ensures viscosity influence on calculation results.
In AxSTREAM 220.127.116.11, Campbell diagram is a newly-implemented option that displays rotating and stationary reference frames vibration modes split as a result of whirling. It enables users to find the critical speed for a stationary frame of reference.
Among other useful features of the latest AxSTREAM, more detailed Mollier diagram and new charts for blade loading on Profiling should be mentioned.
Also, in the recent version the Streamline Solver has been adapted to centrifugal compressor calculations.
The new AxSTREAM™ release will be presented at SoftInWay interactive workshop on turbomachinery flow path design in Dusseldorf, Germany, December 3-5, 2008. During the 3-day training SoftInWay will illustrate the latest innovations and enable attendees to utilize the 3rd generation of AxSTREAM™ for more effective turbine and compressor design.
