Integrated Initial Sizing

A selection of meanline design tools from PCA Engineers is included with ANSYS BladeModeler software: ANSYS Vista CCD for centrifugal compressors, ANSYS Vista RTD for radial turbines, ANSYS Vista CPD for centrifugal pumps and ANSYS Vista AFD for axial fans. Given the machine duty — mass flow, pressure ratio, etc. — and geometric constraints, the program will configure the blade geometry and provide essential non-dimensional performance parameters including specific speed and specific flow. The blade geometry is output directly for use in ANSYS BladeModeler.

Initial Sizing ToolsANSYS BladeModeler includes initial sizing tools for various types
of rotating machinery: compressors, turbines, pumps and fans.
