    New Release FINE™/Turbo, FINE™/Agile & FINE™/Design3D v16.1

    March 25th, 2021 by John Baxter

    Amongst other improvements, this new release includes:

    Limitless NonLinear Harmonic method with the rank-N

    The NonLinear Harmonic method is a unique feature of FINE™ that has quickly become a staple among turbomachinery design engineers. It provides accurate modeling of periodic unsteady disturbances throughout a turbomachine – information typical of URANS simulations, but now several orders of magnitude faster.

    AutoGrid5™ – a new approach for impellers with blunt blades

    Most impellers are built using a traditional subtraction manufacturing process: a milling machine uses a cutting tool to form the blade surface in one or more passes. This technique allows for high flexibility and quality of the finished part, but each blade has to be defined by a relatively large fillet radius and a trimmed profile. The newest mesh topology in AutoGrid5™ accurately replicates the fillet’s and blade’s actual geometry, without sacrificing mesh quality thanks to the so-called “butterfly” topology. The trailing edge of the impeller is connected to the next block by a non-matching connection to prevent distortion of cells downstream of the trailing edge.

    FINE™/Agile 16.1

    Includes the latest release from Concepts NREC (version 8.9), with numerous improvements and fixes for a better preliminary and detailed design
