AEA Technology of the UK has won an order from Honeywell Turbocharging Systems for its three-dimensional blade design software, CFX-BladeGen. Honeywell will use the package to speed up the design of turbochargers.
CFX-BladeGen includes an embedded and fully automated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solver to provide rapid viscous-flow screening of blades. This allows 3D evaluations on specific geometries to be produced at the push of a button. It also offers automated model set-up, analysis and report generation that can be customised by the designer.
Existing datafiles can be edited with the software as it offers flexible data handling.
