Ansys Vista TF
Turbomachinery Design & Simulation Software

Ansys Vista TF is specialized for turbomachinery design and allows you to perform ultra-fast simulations for preliminary designs.


Vista TF provides rapid insight into your turbomachinery design

2D throughflow simulation is a critical step in the rotating machinery design process. Vista TF provides you with quick answers and can grant a better insight to your design or expose unexpected issues. Perform initial design iterations in 2D before moving to detailed 3D analysis to reduce development time and engineering resources.

Turbocharged Efficiency

Engineers use Vista TF to run in-depth, highly iterative analyses to boost design performance.


“All of the work is done within Workbench, facilitating rapid improvements in blade design in a process that is amenable to automatic iteration and optimization.” —PCA

A high-performance turbocharger is a critical component for engine performance. The engineers at PCA were looking for a way to optimize turbocharger performance while simultaneously finding the most efficient approach to their problems. Ansys Vista TF quickly proved to be the best answer, as it offered fast, high-quality answers contained in a streamlined workspace.

Once the first iteration of blades was developed, the PCA engineers simply imported the geometry into Ansys Vista TF 2D throughflow solver. Vista TF quickly provided a solution that allowed engineers to spend more time evaluating performance and make modifications to meet their goals. 2D simulation analysis is often overlooked, but it can be especially important to solve these initial problems before moving to a more comprehensive 3D analysis.  The streamlined workspace allotted more time for analysis and helped PCA efficiently develop a robust and cost-effective turbocharger.
