ANSYS TurboGrid provides turbomachinery designers and analysts with mesh creation tailored specifically to the needs of bladed geometries. It creates high-quality hexahedral meshes that are tuned to the demands of fluid dynamics analysis in rotating machinery.
ANSYS TurboGrid imports geometry definitions from blade design software like ANSYS BladeModeler. In a modern graphical user interface, selected topologies are adjusted to the specifics of a particular blade design. The integrated grid topologies ensure an optimal mesh can be created, with minimal user input required. The same topology is then automatically adapted to variants of a design, ensuring a consistent mesh is produced. Such self-consistent meshes are critical when assessing differences in performance predictions between designs, to minimize the mesh dependency in any such comparisons. ANSYS TurboGrid also includes full scripting for batch mode operation, to maximize productivity when assessing many variants to optimize blade geometries.
Using ANSYS TurboGrid within the ANSYS Workbench platform also allows users to set up complete turbomachinery analyses, from geometry design to meshing, with persistent system-wide parameter management to automate entire standardized processes.
