Axial compressor stall

Full-annulus, unsteady simulation of stall inception in 12 hours

Crosswind takeoff

Fully installed, unsteady calculation of two engine fans at a crosswind takeoff condition within a design timescale

Cooled turbine rotor

Direct simulation of unsteady cooling flow in an unstructured turbine grid using a desktop machine

Industrial gas turbine

Together with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries we produced a full annulus unsteady simulation of the first 1.5 stages of an industrial gas turbine

Coupled airframe and engine fan

Turbostream enables large, multi-component simulations like this fully coupled unsteady simulation of an aircraft, intake and engine fan stage

Three stage transonic compressor

Working with Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery to produce a time-accurate simulation of a compressor test rig.

Prediction of radial turbine performance

In collaboration with Honeywell International, we performed full-annulus unsteady simulations of radial turbines in a few hours on a desktop

Open rotor at angle of attack

As part of work undertaken at the Whittle Laboratory for the European FP7 Dream Project, Turbostream was used for simulations of an Open Rotor test rig operating at an angle of attack

Radial compressor stage

Prediction of radial compressor performance and unsteady loading with a vaned diffuser and volute
