Best of Turbomachinery

Turbomachinery applications play a significant role in most industries: power generation, oil and gas, aeronautics, HVAC, chemical processing, healthcare and automotive. Rotating equipment companies increasingly leverage engineering simulation to build in efficiency as they reduce emissions, fuel burn and time to market. This special issue of ANSYS Advantage includes many examples of leading companies that leverage engineering simulation to develop high-performing and reliable rotating machinery.
