Gridgen Automates Turbomachinery Meshing

Streamlines illustrate the flow through the Aachen 1.5 stage axial turbine.

Gridgen is a high-quality preprocessor for computational fluid dnamics (CFD). We have developed a custom turbomachinery interface that reads geometry files directly and grids them automatically. Gridgen gives you a complete, high-quality model built and ready for immediate CFD analysis at the push of a button. Gridgen will export the model in the native format of many CFD solvers, including ANSYS CFX, STAR-CD, and ANSYS Fluent. And if you want to add other portions of the flowpath, Gridgen gives you the flexibility to easily do that too.

Using Gridgen for turbomachinery gives you the best of all worlds: easy to use, highly automated design and analysis with the flexibility to make your own detailed changes when you want. Contact us today to see how we can improve your designs and save you time.

High Mass Flow Pump BladeModeler Pump
The high mass flow through this generic pump is illustrated by streamlines.
This generic pump was designed in ANSYS BladeModeler and meshed in Gridgen.
