Caterpillar Propulsion: CAESES for Propeller Design

Some time ago, Caterpillar Propulsion introduced CAESES® for the design of propeller blades. When we started on a project basis, the overall idea was to implement CAESES® as some sort of workbench that integrates and controls all the participating meshing and simulation software. At the same time, CAESES® should also deliver the 3D parametric blade design which allows the Caterpillar engineers to remodel their existing blade and profile definitions, but also gives high flexibility for trying out completely new designs.

As a result of this work, we have now put together a short case study that gives you insights to the use of CAESES® in the context of advanced propeller design:
