Engineers need high-quality mesh for high-quality fluid dynamics analysis.
ANSYS TurboGrid software provides turbomachinery designers and analysts with mesh creation tailored specifically to the needs of bladed geometries. It creates high-quality hexahedral meshes that are tuned to the demands of fluid dynamics analysis in rotating machinery.
ANSYS TurboGrid imports geometry definitions from blade design software like ANSYS BladeModeler. In a modern graphical user interface, selected topologies are adjusted to the specifics of a particular blade design. The integrated grid topologies ensure that an optimal mesh can be created, with minimal user input required. The same topology is then automatically adapted to variants of a design, ensuring that the mesh produced is consistent. Such self-consistent meshes are critical when assessing differences in performance predictions between designs to minimize the mesh dependency in any such comparisons.
ANSYS TurboGrid includes full scripting for batch mode operation to maximize productivity when assessing many variants to optimize blade geometries.
Using ANSYS TurboGrid within the ANSYS Workbench platform allows users to set up complete turbomachinery analyses, from geometry design to meshing, with persistent system-wide parameter management to automate the entire standardized processes.
