  • 1D meanline with advanced Data Reduction for model calibration
    • Design complete stages with additional components such as vaned and vaneless diffusers, stators, volutes, and additional stages.
  • 2D Throughflow and Blade to Blade CFD Solvers
  • Detailed 3D geometry generation
  • 3D blade shaping operations
  • Advanced volute shaping and editing
  • Integrated 3D CFD
    • Automatic structured meshing mesh and simulation setup
    • “One-click” setup
  • Built-in optimization
  • Database for storing and re-using legacy designs for use in future designs
  • CAD Import/Export
    • Ability to export the 3D model for further applications like flow simulation (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA) and mechanical design (CAD)
  • 3D Structural Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Support linear and non-linear static analysis, thermal analysis and modal analysis.
  • Automatic pre-processing: Automatic mesh generation and automatic setup of constraints, loads, and CFD loads
  • Full post-processing support: text report, Campbell/ interference diagram, contour and deformation plots, etc.
  • Integration for seamless export to ANSYS CFX (through Turbo Grid) or ANSYS Mechanical. TurboTides is an authorized ANSYS Software Solutions Partner.
  • No extra costs for common functions such as LAN floating, multi-stage, CAD Import/Export, additional processors, etc.
