3D Multi-Disciplinary Inverse Design Based Optimization of a Centrifugal Compressor Impeller

Written by Prof. Mehrdad Zangeneh (ADT / University College of London), Fred Mendonça (CD-ADAPCO), Youngwon Hahn (SIMULIA) & Jack Cofer (SIMULIA)

What's inside?

In this paper, for the first time, a commercially available solution, compatible with industrial development times, is presented for 3D multi-disciplinary and multi-point design optimisation of turbomachinery blades. The methodology combines 3D inverse design method, automatic optimizers, 3D CFD and 3D FEA codes. 


3D Multi-Disciplinary Inverse Design


In this publication, you will:

  1. How using inverse design significantly cuts the number of design iterations required and makes the response surfaces far more accurate
  2. See how engineers can create a very large design space with just a few design parameters
  3. Understand the important role of seamless integration between TURBOdesign Suite, CFD and FEA
