Innovation & Quality

This version comes with a documentation platform accessible on-line, or for download with the software package, on our customer area on AutoBlade™, AutoGrid5™ and CFView™ are also available as stand-­alone.

Several improvements and new capabilities, described in the section 'New features' of the documentation, have been introduced to ease your daily work and extend the scope of application of FINE™/Turbo and FINE™/Design3D, in particular:

  • AutoBlade™: Parametric template for turbochargers

  • AutoBlade™: Parametric definition of hub/shroud gaps

  • AutoBlade™: Export blade sections and rulings to VDA-FS format

  • AutoGrid5™: Advanced control of expansion ratio in skin block

  • AutoGrid5™: Export solid domain grid to Abaqus format

  • AutoGrid5™: Export fluid domain grid to CRUNCH-CFD format

  • FINE™/Turbo: CPU-Booster™ - Flexible computations initialization

  • FINE™/Turbo: NLH - Flexibility on harmonics selection

  • FINE™/Turbo: FSI - Strong coupling approach for unsteady modal computations

  • FINE™/Design3D: UQ - Probability density function reconstruction

  • FINE™/Design3D: UQ - Access to scaled sensitivities

  • FINE™/Design3D: FEA - Local extraction of mechanical stresses

We hope you will take benefit from this new version.

Thanos Poulos

Thanos got a Mechanical Engineering degree from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2011. After completing the mandatory military service, he went on to study to Turbomachinery Aeromechanics at the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), the Université de Liège (Belgium) and Duke University (USA) through the THRUST Erasmus Mundus Programme where he obtained a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering while working on problems such the minimization of forcing in turbomachinery blades, engine start-up forced response analysis and non-synchronous vibrations. In 2014, he joined NUMECA as an account manager to manage the full sales cycle for the turbomachinery industry and since 2016 he is a Turbomachinery CFD Engineer helping other engineers solve their CFD problems and creating content to promote CFD in the turbomachinery industry.
