SoftinWay Unveils Powerful New Solvers for AxSTREAM Turbomachinery Conceptual Design and Optimization Suite at ASME/IGTI Turbo Expo 2008

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, May 5, 2008. SoftInWay, a global leader in the development of flow path design software for axial and radial turbomachinery, today announced that it will be unveiling set of new Streamline Solvers in the AxSTREAM™ Turbomachinery Conceptual Design and Optimization Suite.

New solvers now give AxSTREAM the capability to perform streamline analysis on a greater level, one of the most effective but complicated tasks to model in flow path design practice. A few of the features and benefits of these new capabilities are:

Axisymmetric analysis of multi-staged flow paths for turbines and compressors
Streamline solver runs multiple times faster than mesh-oriented through-flow calculations and allows the use of validated empirics.
Allows the introduction of auxiliary elements in flow-path (ducts, inlet/outlet devices, HEX, etc).
Axisymmetric analysis of turbines and compressors flow-paths with counter-rotating blade rows.
Calculate multi-staged centrifugal/mixed compressors flow-paths.
In addition, SoftInWay has developed a new Euler 3D flow solver to determine 3D flow characteristics which gives the opportunity to quickly evaluate designs without having to go outside the design system to create mesh and perform 3D CFD.

“The introduction of these new solvers to AxSTREAM significantly increases the designer’s capability to optimize the complete flow path even so complicated designs such as low pressure section of steam turbines,” stated Mr. Petr Pagur, Director of Software Development for SoftInWay.

These new features and capabilities will be demonstrated at the Stage Presentation in the exhibit hall at 1 PM on Tuesday, June 10. On-going demonstrations of AxSTREAM will be conducted at SoftInWay’s exhibition booth, #104, throughout the conference.
