CAD Import and Export

TurboTides includes powerful input/output functions for wide-used 3rd-party CAD formats. Geometries may be used in native form (i.e., not parameterized) for analysis in CFD or FEA. Geometries may also be fully parameterized in TurboTides, capturing key features like main blades, splitter blades, fillets, leading and training edges, etc. Imported models may then be modified or…

Geometry Generation and 2D

The geometry generation function is the central “hub” of the TurboTides system. All TurboTides design steps access the same geometry, as defined in a unified geometry model. A 3D new design is generated starting with the meanline description, adding 3D details to shape the flow path and blading based on 2D throughflow and blade-to-blade solvers.…
