For the past few weeks, the ANSYS blog has published many posts and ANSYS has held a number of webinars describing the advantages that ANSYS 17.0 provides for turbomachinery simulation. In the following, I will review these events and provide my summary of 10 (out of many more) exciting developments:
- A focus on HPC delivers significant speedups and ability to handle larger models, for both CFD and mechanical simulation.
- A new mechanical model simulates journal bearings, additionally providing important inputs of stiffness and damping for rotordynamics simulation.
- Fracture analysis is faster and easier with arbitrary crack surface definition and post-processing.
