NREC Engineering Design System

Agile surpasses traditional flow paths and shapes

Concepts NREC is updating the Agile Engineering Design System v2023.0 software for Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) specialized for turbomachinery. The new MAX-PAC CAM software version delivers surface milling capabilities to build and mill arbitrary surfaces that are not part of the bladed configuration.

Concepts NREC has improved all CAE codes with a focus on secondary flow paths including seals, swirl breaks and pump-out vanes. Automated optimization comes with improvements to TurboOpt II. Rocket engine designers now have new models for the impacts of secondary flows on performance and thrust as well as the ability to design stages that include both inducers and impellers.
