SoftInWay unveils AxSTREAM System Simulation, providing engineers with the tools to design, model, and study thermodynamic cycles and fluid systems in one powerful software interface.
Burlington, MA, January 19, 2023 – SoftInWay, is thrilled to announce the release of its highly anticipated addition to the AxSTREAM Platform, AxSTREAM System Simulation. This release marks the next step in a move towards complete integration of complex technology as AxSTREAM System Simulation breaks down interface gaps and related challenges that often arise when performing 0D-1D system design, modeling, and optimization across different tools and team members.
Born out of the union of SoftInWay’s legacy AxCYCLE (thermodynamic design) and AxSTREAM NET (fluid system modeling) software, AxSTREAM System Simulation has 3 core functions:
- Design, model, and explore new energy conversion and auxiliary systems
- Evaluate different cycle architectures and analyze the performance of off-the-shelf products
- Optimize existing equipment (including engines and power plants) accounting for all affected technologies in one interface
AxSTREAM System Simulation empowers its users to perform digital prototyping of turbomachinery, energy conversion, and propulsion systems through individual or coupled 0D-1D system modeling. Through the software’s customized scripting capabilities, vast library of embedded compressible and incompressible fluids, and ability to perform both steady-state and transient calculations, the extent and associated costs of physical testing can be reduced without compromising equipment quality.
When asked to comment on the release, SoftInWay’s CEO Leonid Moroz had this to say. “After speaking with a number of clients about what would improve their engineering toolchain, the feedback was clear. The industry needs a reliable and integrated way to design, view, and analyze entire systems. In reality, these complex systems and their components do not operate independently. What we often see is different departments working on different functions of the same system which leads to informational, technological, and compatibility bottlenecks. In addition, we are also seeing an unprecedented rise in innovative technology such as fuel cells, supersonics, and hydrogen propulsion. As this technology evolves, so must the engineering tools used to develop it. Our team has been working tirelessly to ensure our customers have access to the full picture with a few clicks of a mouse and that is the direction we see this product, and the larger AxSTREAM platform headed towards. We’re very excited about this first release and are looking forward to building on it with future releases.”
AxSTREAM System Simulation can be utilized to perform coupled 0D-1D modeling of thermodynamic and fluid systems in a wide variety of applications, including propulsion, HVAC, refrigeration, power generation, hydrogen, and fuel cell technology as well as related auxiliary systems. AxSTREAM System Simulation is the latest capability added inside the AxSTREAM Platform for complete design of turbomachinery components and systems.
