PRESS RELEASE

August 1, 2018


TurboTides Inc. forms Collaborative Agreement with Flexware, Inc., to offer TurboTides integrated turbomachinery design package to CompAero and TurbAero users. 


· TurboTides Inc. and Flexware Inc. have announced an agreement whereby Flexware Inc. will help promote the TurboTides integrated turbomachinery design software package to users of CompAero and TurbAero, software programs originally created by the late Ron Aungier, a pioneer in the field of industrial turbomachinery design.


· The companies have agreed on a technical collaboration to ensure CompAero and TurbAero users who need the fully modern and more full-featured TurboTides can experience a smooth transition to the newer and more functionally comprehensive system.


· As part of the agreement, TurboTides will also be offering to its international clients Flexware Inc.’s Flex Live® solution for continuous condition monitoring of turbines and compressors.


Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA. August 1, 2018. TurboTides Inc., the publishers of the TurboTides next-generation, comprehensive design software package for turbomachinery, and Flexware Inc., turbomachinery consultants and the distributors of CompAero and TurbAero, have announced a business and technical collaboration whereby Flexware Inc. will help to promote the TurboTides integrated turbomachinery design software package to users of the CompAero and TurbAero software codes, which Flexware Inc. acquired from Ron Aungier in 2014. 


TurboTides is a unified design software solution for turbomachinery that includes all the necessary design tools in a single software package and user environment. TurboTides may be used to design centrifugal, mixed-flow, and axial compressors, turbines, fans, blowers, and pumps for virtually any application.

TurboTides also includes a unique Knowledgebase module for capturing and retaining organizational knowledge of turbomachinery designs, including essential design data, CFD results, and experimental test data.


With this agreement, TurboTides Inc., will provide a smooth transition to TurboTides from CompAero and TurbAero which, though widely used, have not been recently modernized. “TurboTides is uniquely suited to become the go-to solution for those CompAero and TurbAero users who require a more modern and fully complete design solution,” said Dr. Xuwen Qiu, President of TurboTides Inc. “In addition, a great deal of the modeling and design principles championed by Ron Aungier are already built into the DNA of TurboTides as a result of his substantial body of published work on turbomachinery design. Now we will add direct backward file compatibility and ensure a smooth transition for the many users of Ron’s software. We are honored to be working with the Flexware engineers, who know these codes so well.”


“Ron Aungier was my good friend,” said Ted Gresh, President and CEO of Flexware Inc. “At Flexware, we’ve been pleased and proud to sell and support Ron’s software all these years. The time has come, however, for us also to introduce to our clients who need it a truly modern and fully integrated solution for turbomachinery design that goes beyond what has been available before now. We are happy to know that Ron Aungier’s legacy for turbomachinery design lives on and will continue to help the turbomachinery engineering community he himself served so well during his lifetime.”


Flexware Inc. will continue to offer CompAero and TurbAero licenses to new and existing clients but will also make them aware of TurboTides if they require a more comprehensive solution. As part of the agreement, TurboTides Inc. will become a distributor for Flexware’s Flex Live® turbomachinery condition monitoring software.  Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

PRESS RELEASE

June 6, 2018


TurboTides Turbomachinery Design Software Package is Launched Internationally


· Complete design system covers all steps in the turbomachinery design process from thermodynamic cycles though CFD and FEA analysis while offering user-friendly integrated optimization and knowledge management.


· Uniquely innovative, purpose-built knowledgebase captures design knowledge and experience to preserve organizational design knowledge and allow development of successful turbomachinery designs with higher confidence.


Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA. June 6, 2018. TurboTides Inc., the publishers of the TurboTides next-generation, comprehensive design software package for turbomachinery, have announced the worldwide international release of TurboTides. Already in use by commercial clients in select test markets, TurboTides is now to be licensed worldwide.


TurboTides is a unified design software solution for turbomachinery that includes all the necessary design tools in a single software package and user environment. TurboTides may be used to design centrifugal, mixed-flow, and axial compressors, turbines, fans, blowers, and pumps for virtually any application. TurboTides also offers an integrated optimization capability that can be used at each design step or may be span multiple steps at the same time. 


TurboTides is designed to assist turbomachinery developers to optimize not just the stage design but the process itself. Built to handle single-stage or multistage turbomachinery, TurboTides includes thermodynamic cycle design and optimization capabilities that can be combined with 1D meanline performance prediction to make important design decisions. These decisions might include the power balance between compressor and turbine in a turbocharger or the pressure ratio split in a multistage air compressor. Meanwhile, the TurboTides Design Wizard incorporates application-specific design rules that allow even novice designers to obtain a reasonable starting design in three simple steps.


When a meanline design has been finalized, TurboTides provides a starting design for the 3D geometry, which the user may then optimize interactively or automatically. It is here that flow passage contours, blade angle distributions, or blade thickness distributions, etc., may be optimized based on the included 2D blade-to-blade and throughflow simulation capabilities. The included optimizer can be used at this stage, for example, to minimize blade loading. From this step, a complete CFD simulation requires just a few mouse clicks while an FEA calculation for stress, thermal, or vibration analysis is just as straightforward to complete. 


“We at TurboTides are very excited about this international launch, which coincides with the release of our latest, feature-rich version of TurboTides,” remarked Dr. Xuwen Qiu, President of TurboTides Inc. and chief software architect for the TurboTides software. “TurboTides is not a collection of different software programs that work together but rather one software package that uses a single, shared geometry model for every step of the design process. This “one-stop shop” serves to standardize the design process and facilitate faster design iterations, allowing diverse teams of designers to produce successful designs consistently while reducing overall design cycle time.”


About TurboTides Inc. TurboTides Inc. is a New Hampshire-based company offering ground-breaking technologies and complete solutions for turbomachinery design. TurboTides Inc. provides sales, technical support, training and consulting for TurboTides customers worldwide.
