Aeromechanical Simulation: Flutter, Forced Response and Mistuning

May 27, 2020 at 11:00 AM (EDT) / 3:00 PM (GMT)

Learn how to maintain and improve reliability, durability and safety for turbomachinery applications by performing high-fidelity aeromechanical simulations. Blade flutter and forced response, including mistuning, are important aspects of aeromechanical analysis. Ansys has core technologies that enable faster and streamlined aeromechanical workflows, including:

  • Transient blade row (TBR) methods
  • Cyclic symmetry
  • Mode superposition
  • Efficient one-way coupling

Discover how these capabilities can be used to improve your designs by better simulating and understanding advanced flow and structural phenomena, as well as the interaction between the two.

Smart Shape Optimization for Turbomachinery using the Ansys Fluent Adjoint Solver

The Ansys Fluent adjoint solver is an automated, smart shape-optimization tool that has seen many advances in recent years, including improvements in robustness, applicable physics, morphing capabilities and usability.

This webinar will focus on recent developments, which include:

  • A full shape-optimization workflow
  • Multi-objective and multi-condition optimization

There will be a live demonstration of the gradient-based optimizer for a 180-degree pipe bend geometry, showing how the optimization process can be automated over multiple design points.
