SoftInWay Presents a New Version of AxSTREAM™ Software for Turbomachinery Flow Path Design and Optimization
BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, December 4, 2008. SoftInWay has launched a
new release 188.8.131.52 of AxSTREAM™ Turbomachinery Flow Path
Design, Analysis and Optimization Software. Release 184.108.40.206, focused on
optimizing turbomachinery and smoothing the design process, essentially
combines the enhanced features of previous AxSTREAM versions with the
latest developments of SoftInWay.
One of the key innovations introduced to the new release is an advanced
Euler flow solver. The solver's main objective is to rapidly define 3D
flow path characteristics. Easy to use, it allows users to
control/change mesh quality, to use previous calculation steps results
as initial values for new calculations and to calculate the whole
stage. Besides, the new Euler solver uses constant MFR in calculation,
improves calculation accuracy through more accurate approximation in
finite-elements and ensures viscosity influence on calculation results.
In AxSTREAM 220.127.116.11, Campbell diagram is a newly-implemented option
that displays rotating and stationary reference frames vibration modes
split as a result of whirling. It enables users to find the critical
speed for a stationary frame of reference.
Among other useful features of the latest AxSTREAM, more detailed
Mollier diagram and new charts for blade loading on Profiling should be
Also, in the recent version the Streamline Solver has been adapted to
centrifugal compressor calculations.
The new AxSTREAM™ release was presented at SoftInWay
interactive workshop on turbomachinery flow path design in Dusseldorf,
Germany, December 3-5, 2008. During the 3-day training SoftInWay
illustrated the latest innovations and enabled attendees to utilize the
3rd generation of AxSTREAM™ for more effective turbine and
