ADT to unveil new design optimization methods at ASME Turbo Expo 2014

Advanced Design Technology, Ltd. (ADT), developer of advanced turbomachinery design methods, is planning to demonstrate the TURBOdesign Suite and its three-dimensional (3D) inverse design optimization capabilities for superior turbomachinery performances at the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) Turbo Expo 2014.

The company is expected to exhibit in Booth 505 at the expo that is scheduled for June 16-20, at the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf, Germany.

The TURBOdesign Suite and ADT’s engineering design services are said to be beneficial to design engineers and original equipment manufacturers. These help shorten development times and improve components efficiency.

The ASME Turbomachinery Conference is recognized as the must attend event for turbomachinery professionals that is reputed for bringing together the best and brightest experts from around the world to share the latest in turbine technology, research and development, and application in the following topic areas: gas turbines, steam turbines, wind turbines, fans & blowers, solar brayton & rankine cycle and supercritical CO2. The 3-day exhibition attracts the industry's leading professionals and key decision makers, whose innovation and expertise are helping to shape the future of the turbomachinery industry.

Recent developments in design

At this year’s conference, ADT’s representatives are expected to present three technical publications highlighting recent developments in turbomachinery design, analysis and optimization.

Mehrdad Zangeneh, founder and managing director of ADT said, maturing efficiency levels across turbomachinery applications force OEMs and design engineers to work outside their comfort zone and explore new areas of the design space.

Turbomachinery design optimization based on 3D inverse design provided the best means to explore larger areas of the design space and couple aerodynamic, structural and aero-acoustic disciplines in the optimization process within timeframe compatible with industrial development schedules and costs, he added.
