Funding project
An innovative method for design, layout and simulation of optimized turbomachinery

The aim of the project is to automatically design optimal turbomachines within the CFturbo software with the help of methods of virtual design of experiments (V.DoE). A cost-effective and robust method is to be developed with the aid of which the most important geometric parameters of turbomachinery are automatically varied and the resulting complex geometries are validated with flow simulation programs (CFD). The aim is to automatically determine the machine geometry that best meets the target parameters specified by the customer (e.g. high efficiency).

Funding project
Automatic optimization of turbomachinery

The aim of the project is to develop a robust workflow tailored to CFturbo. This should allow the integration of different optimization and simulation tools, so that the user has to spend significantly less personnel and time resources compared to a conventional, manual optimization. The scope of the necessary adjustments by the user should be limited to a manageable number. This will lower the time and technical acceptance threshold for optimization workflows and increase the acceptance of automatic product optimization for small and medium-sized companies.
