Improving Steam Turbine Efficiency with Simulation: B&B AGEMA develops tested tools for turbine blade design and optimization


Simulation for gas turbine blade design and optimization

Meeting the ever-increasing worldwide demand for energy while simultaneously reducing CO2 emissions in order to meet global climate goals—that is the challenge faced by the power generation industry in general, and gas turbines in particular. Companies are meeting the challenge by using sophisticated simulation and design exploration tools including NX, Simcenter STAR-CCM+®, and Simcenter HEEDS from Siemens PLM software.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how B&B-AGEMA is using these tools to develop efficient, low-emission gas turbines.

Specifically, you’ll learn about:

  • The role that multi-physics simulation plays in multiple aspects of turbine blade design and optimization
  • The process chain that B&B AGEMA developed to design highly efficient steam turbine airfoils, which includes 1D, 2D and 3D simulations
  • The importance of incorporating automated design space exploration early in the design process, and in all stages of the turbine’s design process

Register now to learn how companies are using these tools to design innovative turbines that achieve their performance and emissions goals.
