Redesign of Turbomachinery Rotor

Existing turbomachinery rotors had flat profile dovetails for attaching blades. These were proving to be life limiting regions. The design for these rotors had to be changed while meeting design requirements. This had to be done without increasing the cost of the final product. This was achieved using ANSYS software in a design of experiments (DOE) framework having both discrete as well as continuous parameters in the design space.
