FINETM/Turbo

Flow Integrated Environment for rotating and non-rotating flow analysis in external and internal turbomachinery applications. Recognized as the fastest and most accurate CFD suite by the worldwide turbomachinery community.

FINETM/Turbo is the fastest CFD suite for rotating machinery with incompressible and compressible fluids, from subsonic to hypersonic flow regimes. All types of multi-stage axial, radial or mixed-flow configurations are supported: compressors, turbines, pumps, fans, propellers or contra-rotating propellers. From meshing to results visualization, the FINETM/Turbo application-oriented graphical user interface is intuitive, enabling fast project set-up and analysis. The simulation process is streamlined with:

  • AutoGrid5TM: Automated grid generator for turbomachinery configuration, delivers the highest quality structured meshes with minimum user input. Its Wizard mode handles all types of rotating machinery configurations and complexities.
  • FINETM/Turbo flow solver: 3D Navier-Stokes flow solver, recognized as the fastest and most accurate for turbomachinery configurations. Acceleration of several orders of magnitude is achieved thanks to the CPUBoosterTM technique, NLH approach and HPC scalability.
  • CFViewTM: Advanced post-processing tool, provides dedicated flow visualization and analysis outputs in an easy-to-use turbomachinery-oriented mode.
  • AutoGrid5TM:
  • Wizard mode: optimal mesh topology based on configuration
  • Advanced geometry features: blade fillets, axisymmetric and non-axisymmetric effects
  • Advanced configurations: multistage, bulb, by-pass
  • Automated blocking and meshing of axisymmetric effects
  • Python scripting technology
  • FINETM/Turbo flow solver:
  • One single code for all types of fluids (incompressible, low-compressible, condensable and fully compressible) and speed (low speed to hypersonic regime)
  • Acceleration with the CPUBooster module provides 3-5 times gain in convergence speed
  • Non Linear Harmonic (NLH) module for full unsteady rotor-stator interactions with gains of 1 to 3 orders of magnitude in CPU time
  • HPC for high performance computing on supercomputers with linear speed-up on up to 5,000 to 10,000 cores
  • Embedded fluid structure interaction with the Modal and Flutter Analysis module
