By using CAESES, we could massively bring down our turbine design cycle from several months to only a few weeks.

We launched a pilot project with Friendship Systems to evaluate CAESES in May, it helped us solve a time-critical task in July and it became a design tool by October. By then we had created flexible and robust parametric models for complex parts, enabling us to optimize in design spaces we had previously not been able to explore.

In our experience, using CAESES for creating parametric models was MUCH faster and easier than with our traditional CAD tool – hours versus weeks! For complex geometries, the traditional CAD tool was not the optimum solution because when creating variants we experienced a lot of infeasible geometries, whereas in CAESES we had almost 100% success. At Sirehna, CAESES has become an indispensable tool for conducting comprehensive shape optimization studies in an automated CFD-driven design process.

Before introducing CAESES we ran about one hundred RANSE simulations per year. On the basis of CAESES we are now able to undertake several ten thousands of viscous simulations every year with no additional effort. This gives us an exceptional insight for key product decisions that we would not be able to generate without CAESES.
