SoftInWay has scheduled the next free webinar on turbomachinery retrofitting techniques used to increase efficiency using AxSTREAM. Webinar "Retrofitting of Turbomachinery - from Scanned Data to a New Efficient Flow Path" will be held on April 28, 2011, at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST.
The SoftInWay team will present the full redesign process to the attendees: starting from analyzing scanned data and determining profile characteristics, followed with 1D/2D analysis of existing flow path, evaluation and selection of sections which require redesign and finally the design of new and efficient airfoils.
New AxSTREAM capabilities which support the redesign process include:
1. AxSLICE module analyzes raw scanned data points and determines airfoil characteristics (which saves time on one of the most time consuming parts of the retrofitting process)
2. Completely redesigned preliminary design module allows the engineer to optimize or redesign sections & modules while keeping the remaining flow path without changes
The overall process is applicable for all types of turbomachinery. For illustration of the new technology, a steam turbine will be used which includes HP, IP and LP sections.
The presentation is followed by an open forum where SoftInWay's industry experts will answer your questions.
