New Turbo Engineering Platform
By Jack Burke03 April 2019
CFturbo, the global supplier of interactive, parametric turbomachinery design and simulation software, has announced the availability of the latest version of its CFturbo engineering platform. CFturbo 10.4 can be used to design axial, radial and mixed-flow pumps, fans, blowers, compressors and turbines, as well as for diffusers, stators, return channels and volutes including secondary flow path modeling.
New features include a bi-directional, parametric integration into ANSYS Workbench, elliptical cross-section shapes for volutes, export interfaces to Parasolid and hyperMill, a direct path to the Coolprop library for real gas behavior, easier access to parametric batch mode optimization, and numerous other enhancements.
“In addition to better turbomachinery design capabilities, we have upgraded our software with an improved solution for fast, accurate, cost-effective and user-friendly 3D-flow-simulation,” said Ralph Peter Mueller, President of CFturbo, Inc. “With CFturbo SMP customers get realistic results that compare accurately with multiple field tests on various types of turbomachines. It provides users with the confidence to design excellent geometries before building and testing physical prototypes.”
Founded in 2008, CFturbo offers a wide range of products and services designed for turbomachinery engineering. CFturbo GmbH is headquartered in Dresden, Germany, with its U.S. operation, CFturbo Inc., in Brooklyn, N.Y., along with a global network of distributors.
