AeroDynamic Solutions (ADS), a developer of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis software for the turbomachinery industry, announced that it is now shipping its latest version, ADS Release 6.0, that integrates a new design module (ADS Foil Designer) with its flagship mesh generator (WAND) and flow solver (LEO).
The ADS Foil Designer enables creation of 2D and 3D axial turbine and compressor stages, as well as 3D radial impellers and turbines. This enables parameterization of existing airfoil definitions for highly portable designs that optimization techniques can be easily applied to, the company says.
The ADS Workbench combines the ADS Foil Designer with the ADS turbomachinery mesh generator (WAND) and ADS flow simulator (LEO) to increase user productivity. Users avoid having to change between programs to pre-process geometry, set up test cases, and post-process the results, according to the company.
