CAESES is used for the parametric design of axial fans and similar turbomachinery products, mostly in the context of simulation-driven shape optimization. axial_fan_design_software.png

 

In particular, CAESES is used if you need robust variable geometry models for automated studies. The comprehensive CAD modeling capabilities are geared towards simulation and give fan designers full flexibility (no black box, customization possibilities).

 

More information about turbomachinery design software can be found here.

 

I have also attached a few animations that were generated in CAESES. The design variables of the axial fan model were varied automatically using the integrated variation methods. Note that this is a rather simple model which is also shipped with the software. It can be used as a reference design to set up custom models. The hub and shroud modeling is demonstrated, as well as the 2D-3D mapping of the cylindrical sections and some Boolean Operations to cut the blade at the tip and merge it with the hub. The fillet size can also be controlled by a parameter.

 

If needed, you could also automatically derive the periodic flow domain for automated meshing with grid generation tools or CFD packages.

Here is some information about CAD features for axial fan noise reduction, such as beveled blade tips and vortex control notches. axial-fan-design-noise-reduction.jpg

Hi Jörg

Would you have some files to share to see how to implement such features in Caeses ?

Hi Michou,

 

We'll get in touch with you!

Cheers
