Image slider left: The efficiency of a cooling fan was optimised using TURBOdesign 1 and TURBOdesign Optima. Two designs were produced: one with lower profile loss and the other with lower leakage loss.
The lower leakage design delivered a 7% improvement in efficiency and 26% improvement in pressure rise at design point, with better outright performance across the entire operating range.
The morning sessions will start with a summary of 3D Inverse Design, and then focus on the application and benefits of 3D inverse design to the design of axial, mixed-flow, and centrifugal fans.
These sessions will include the inverse design of volutes and will highlight some of the techniques used to control fan losses and to control tip leakage.
The afternoon sessions will focus on optimizing fan performance using TURBOdesign Optima and Star-CCM+ or ANSYS Workbench, wrapping up with live demos of radial, axial and mixed-flow fan designs, and open clinics.
