ADT ships TURBOdesign 5.2

Advanced Design Technology (ADT), a software developer of turbomachinery design methods, today announces that its TURBOdesign Suite version 5.2 is now shipping. This version of the three-dimensional (3D) inverse design technology software provides a new volute module and faster design and optimization capabilities for wider operating ranges and customized solutions. Design engineers and original equipment manufacturers benefit from the 3D inverse design technology in ADT’s suite.

The Suite is a aerodynamic and hydrodynamic 3D design software package that allows users to design, analyze and optimize all types of turbomachinery, such as axial, mixed-flow, or centrifugal pumps, compressors, fans, turbines and torque converters. Using the software, designers evaluate turbomachinery package size and performance predictions, perform detailed 3D blade design with 3D inverse design capabilities, analyze flow information per component, stage performances with turbomachinery specific 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and automate exploration of the design space with automatic optimization capabilities.

“TURBOdesign software specifies flow related design parameters, which eliminate trial and error and helps engineers view a larger design space. Even new engineers are productive within days. With 5.2 release we bring these functionalities to the design of volutes and casings for the first time.” said Professor Mehrdad Zangeneh, founder and managing director of ADT.
