ADT to showcase TURBOdesign Suite 6.1.0 at the Turbomachinery Pump Symposia 2016

Advanced Design Technology (ADT), a global leader in the development of advanced turbomachinery design methods and the TURBOdesign Suite are delighted to exhibit at the 45th Turbomachinery & 32nd Pump Symposia in Houston, Texas on 12- 15 September 2016. After the recent success of the 12th International Conference on Turbochargers and Turbocharging in London and ASME TURBO EXPO in Seoul, ADT continues its global showcase tour of the latest release of TURBOdesign Suite 6.1.0.

Transient Heat Transfer Analysis of High Speed Train Disc Brake Systems

As the maximum speed of bullet trains continues to increase, overheating and thermal deformation/stress on brake systems are going to be critical for emergency stops. Precise prediction of the maximum temperature is needed for the design of brake systems, especially  for both discs and linings, where how to handle the high speed spinning of discs is the point of the heat/structure coupled analyses. Abaqus provides couple of potential methods but each one had critical shortcomings.

Steam Turbine Start-up Optimization Tool based on Abaqus and Python Scripting

One key aspect for the design of fast and flexible steam turbine operation is thermal stresses arising during transient operation. If the stresses exceed the fatigue limits of the material, the lifetime of the steam turbine is shortened. Detailed finite element analysis is applied during design phase to assess the effect of transient temperature and stress profiles on the complex geometries. A significant amount of design effort is invested to determine the optimal process parameters for start-up (e.g.

Multi-Physics Analysis of a Refractory Metal ACOperated High Temperature Heater with Abaqus

Electrically operated high temperature furnaces and reactors are used in many industrial manufacturing processes such as sintering or single crystal growth in order to allow for the required process conditions. In view of their outstanding characteristics refractory metals are ideally suited as materials for the resistive heating elements. Nevertheless, significant and lifetime-limiting irreversible deformations of these elements can be frequently observed which are assumed to be caused by a combination of temperature expansion, electromagnetic forces, and high temperature creep effects.

Investigation of Candidate Features For Crack Detection in Fan and Turbine Blades and Disks

Identication of fatigue cracks in turbo-machinery components is a vital but costly effort. This work focuses on nonlinearities in the response behavior resulting from the opening and closing of cracks that results in super-harmonic resonances due to harmonic excitations. Experimental results for a cracked cantilever beam are presented as well as the results from numerical simulations of an integrally bladed compressor disk FE model. Identication of sensitive vibration features is expected to contribute to the development of automated crack detection techniques for aircraft engine disks.
