Optimize your design process by integrating TURBOdesign1's 3D Inverse Design method with Ansys Workbench

Turbomachinery manufacturers need to meet many challenges arising from rising fuel costs, emission legislation and global competition. Turbomachinery customers require more efficient products at reasonable costs. Designers are being asked to achieve significant development advancements while also shortening design cycles. 

In this webinar, we will show how by seamlessly integrating 3D Inverse Design method TURBOdesign1 into Ansys Workbench, turbomachinery designers can rapidly develop breakthrough designs that meet difficult multi-objective, multi-point and multi-disciplinary requirements.
