Radial Outflow Turbine Design Online Workshop
This course dives into details on the process of radial-outflow turbine design using the AxSTREAM platform from preliminary design to meanline calculation, performance map, blade profiling and finally 3D analysis (CFD ) while also covering how to reverse engineer such geometry. All registrants will receive a trial software license of AxSTREAM EDU to supplement the subject matter. Students will be able to follow along to the practical exercises detailed throughout the video course.
This workshop will guide attendees through the full design, analysis and optimization of radial-outflow turbines. The program will being with a brief theoretical overview of radial-outflow turbines and introduction to the AxSTREAM® software platform before diving into practical examples with the software, teaching attendees about the process to design a radial outflow turbine from a clean sheet for a given specification. Topics and modules covered during this training session include custom fluid creation using Fluid Designer, radial outflow turbine preliminary design, meanline/streamline analysis, profiling and 3D blade design, and AxCFD™ for performing 3D CFD analysis. In addition, this training also teaches attendees how to import an existing design into AxSTREAM® for analyzing its performance.
