The CFX-BladeGen is a specialized, easy-to-use, three-dimensional software tool for the rapid design of rotating machinery components. The software features a ‘Plus' module which enables rapid 3-D viscous flow screening of the design through an embedded and fully automated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver. This permits early pre-selection of profiles and reduces the number of iterations needed to develop optimum blade design.
The software can be used for axial, mixed-flow and radial blades in applications such as pumps, compressors, fans, blowers, turbines, expanders, turbochargers and inducers. New technology means that minimal knowledge of computational fluid dynamics is required because functions such as 3D-model generation and post processing are simplified and automated. However, more detailed applications are also possible, allowing the most minute details in blade design to be evaluated. The software can process a wide variety of data sources, including line drawings, IGES and generic data files. CFX-BladeGen exports to CAD/CAM through IGES, DXF or ibl.
AEA Technology will be displaying their products at booth #736.
