Parametric Turbomachinery Design and Simulations: An Introduction to CFturbo

March 18, 9:00 AM PT

Abstract

Turbomachinery design and fluid-flow simulations have reached new levels in turnaround time, robustness, and prediction accuracy in recent years. It became possible by combining high-fidelity CFD-solvers with optimization codes and parametric, knowledge-based conceptual design software. In this talk, we will present CFturbo’s fast and user-friendly approach to designing Turbomachinery components from the ground up, simulating performance curves, and getting optimized geometries using Ansys CFX and Ansys optiSlang. The showcase will be a cryogenic rocket turbopump.

Biography

Ralph Peter Mueller is Co-Founder and Managing Director of CFturbo GmbH in Dresden/Germany and President of CFturbo, Inc. in Brooklyn, NY. CFturbo makes conceptual design software and offers engineering services, specialized in Turbomachinery, Computational Fluid Dynamics, and Structural Mechanics. Ralph received an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (1990) from Dresden University of Technology. Before co-founding CFturbo in 2008, he worked three years as a development engineer for General Motors and more than 15 years as an entrepreneur and CFD-consultant, mainly in the German Automotive and Aerospace industry. Today Ralph’s special technical interests are knowledge-based conceptual design methods and automated design exploration in fluid mechanics.

Metin Ozen received B.S. Mechanical Engineering and M.S. Applied Mechanics degrees from Lehigh University and a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut in Applied Mechanics. He is currently with Ozen Engineering Inc, an elite channel partner of Ansys. Metin brings with him over 35 years of experience in Applied Mechanics. He is an ASME Fellow, honored for his contributions to Mechanical Engineering. Metin volunteers for ASME Santa Clara Valley section.
