Turbo-Machinery Design Services
The implementation of modern computer based design and simulation methods offers obvious benefits in the development of turbo-machinery and systems. In a surprisingly short time high quality designs can be created and verified. Virtual product development dramatically reduces the outlay entailed by expensive and time-consuming physical tests.
80/20 Engineering is a distributor of the CFturbo and SCORG design software packages. A key benefit of these tools is the optimum interplay of design and simulation procedures. Besides a rather intuitive, sequential method, commercial CFD/FEA methods can be combined, allowing the entire calculation and optimisation process to be conducted simultaneously.
80/20 Engineering offers consultancy and support in the introduction of CAE methods, as well as extensive services covering the design, simulation and optimisation of fluid machines.
Mesh generation for CFD and FEA calculations
Our engineers can create meshes from the concept geometry created by our fluid machinery design packages or work with complex CAD geometry supplied from elsewhere.
Flow simulation – CFD
Implementation of commercial Navier Stokes solvers like PumpLinx for calculating steady state and transient flows, without/with heat transfer, Conjugate Heat Transfer, moving geometries, Cavitating flows.
Stress analyses – FEA
Statics and dynamics, vibrations, rotor dynamics, life cycle, fracture mechanics, thermal analyses, fluid structure interaction, etc.
Concept planning, processing of design proposals, version optimisation.
Prototyping and experiments
3D design, rapid prototyping, rapid tooling and validation of simulation results in cooperation with our partners.
Turbo-Machinery Example Projects: Centrifugal & Axial Pumps, Positive Displacement Fuel Pumps/Rotary Vane, Drive Control Motors, Propellers, Compressors, Fans/Ventilators, Screw Channel Pumps.
