Hi together,

 

With CAESES, we also focus on the design and optimization of volute geometries. There is a volute section on the CAESES website. Students and PhD students can get a free academic edition of the pro version - the product page gives more information about this.

 

Basically, the software allows you to create robust parametric volute designs for manual/automated design explorations and shape optimization with CFD. In most cases, the volutes in CAESES are tailor-made models, i.e. you can fully customize the geometry design:

 

  • Arbitrary parametric cross-section definitions, e.g. based on your area (A) and center of area (=>R) specifications
  • Use of point data for creating a volute surface
  • User-defined A/R functions (bsplines, mathematical functions)
  • Individual tongue modeling with additional parameters for more detailed design studies and fine-tuning
  • Analysis and control of inlet/outlet area distributions.

 

Usually, our CAESES support team helps you in setting up customized models, either through the helpdesk or, for more complex models and a quick solution, by means of a customer project.

 

See the attachments for some pictures and animations (e.g. the A/R function gets varied as well as the tongue shape).

 

Cheers

Joerg

There is a more recent blog post "How to create a volute in 10 steps" which describes the modeling process by means of a few animations.
