ANSYS BladeModeler software is a specialized, easy-to-use tool for the rapid 3-D design of rotating machinery components. The software incorporates the extensive turbomachinery expertise from ANSYS into a user-friendly graphical environment. ANSYS BladeModeler is used to design axial, mixed-flow, and radial blade components in applications such as pumps, compressors, fans, blowers, turbines, expanders, turbochargers, inducers and more.
ANSYS BladeModeler can take existing blade geometry designs created in other tools and prepare the design data for rapid and detailed simulation and analysis. Alternatively, the meanline sizing tools from PCA Engineers that are provided with ANSYS BladeModeler can be used to supply initial blade geometry designs for subsequent analysis and optimization. In either case, an initial blade geometry design can be further modified and extended using the rich set of tools and functionality for designing rotating machinery blades within the ANSYS BladeModeler product. All this is accomplished in a user environment tailored to rotating machinery, with an intuitive interface and using industry-specific language that blade designers expect. The software contains modes of operation tailored to both radial and axial machinery design processes.
