Lunch & Learn: Designing Gas Turbine Thermo Fluid Systems Using GE's Flow Simulator
12:30pm - 2:30pm
Wednesday, June 19 | Phoenix Convention Center | Room West 101 A
The Flow Simulator is an integrated flow, heat transfer, and combustion design software that enables mixed fidelity simulations to optimize turbomachinery design.
Fast and accurate mixed-fidelity (1D, 2D, and 3D) flow simulations, that can handle complex geometry and long transient missions. A flexible common platform allows different groups to perform modeling with respect to their verticals and thus be combined to create system models.
Flow Simulator has a modern graphic user interface (GUI) with the ability to overlay/integrate the 3D digital CAD with the analytical models. The GUI is geared for design where the pre/solver/and post are all embedded in a single interface. The fully integrated optimization module provides the capability to quickly explore the entire design space within 3D modeling environment. System models can be parametrized based on flow configuration, shape, dimension, and thermal characteristics to achieve an optimal cost-benefit design.
Also included is an extended library of preconfigured elements/components leveraging a large set of publicly-available experimental data for pressure drop and heat transfer characteristics. This fully extensible platform provides customers the capability to integrate their own IP and element formulations seamlessly utilizing Python scripting.
Lunch & Learn: Altair SimSolid: Simulating Large, Complex Assemblies in Minutes
12:30pm - 1:30pm
Thursday, June 20 | Phoenix Convention Center | Room West 101 A
Altair SimSolid is a next generation, high-capacity, structural finite element solution. It uses new meshless computational methods to allow solutions of assemblies, such as turbine engines that have hundreds to thousands of parts, directly on a standard desktop computer. SimSolid eliminates geometry simplification and meshing. These are the two most time consuming, expertise extensive, and error prone tasks done in traditional FEA.
