Fully Automatic Topology & Meshing

ANSYS TurboGrid software includes novel technology that targets complete automation combined with an unprecedented level of mesh quality for even the most complex blade shapes. The desired final mesh size is defined (and, optionally, the blade boundary layer resolution), and all the other steps are performed automatically to produce a mesh of extremely high quality. Grid angles are exceptionally good, mesh sizes transition smoothly, and high aspect-ratio elements are generated in the near-wall regions to resolve these regions efficiently and capture boundary layer flows accurately.

High-quality meshes are generated using unique topology and meshing technology in ANSYS TurboGrid which automatically adapts to span-wise changes in blade shape. The examples show blade-to-blade plots of meshes at different span-wise positions of an axial turbine and a centrifugal compressor with splitter blades.
