FINE/Design3D: Design and optimization of rotating machinery
FINETM/Design3D is a highly customized Integrated Environment for the design and optimization of blades and channels of rotating machinery. This tool allows designers to explore the concept of computer-based innovative design. FINETM/Design3D is integrated in a user-friendly interface with full parametric blade modeler (AutoBladeTM), advanced neural network, and efficient optimization algorithms. Its all-in-one structure allows a direct integration into the design cycle.
FINETM/Design3D covers a large range of applications including multistage axial, radial, and mixed-flow compressor, turbine, pumps, fans, or propellers.
