NEW! Thermodyamic Cycle Analysis

The newest edition to the Concepts NREC turbomachinery design software suite is a 1D thermodynamic cycle calculation tool, CYCAL. This system-level product initiates the component design workflow by calculating the critical fluid property information required by downstream 1D and 3D Concepts NREC design tools such as COMPAL and AxCent.

An interactive, drag-and-drop, canvas and palette interface allows the user to easily build any custom system that most accurately simulates their machine design. Templates for common systems are also provided to streamline and accelerate the cycle analysis process. CYCAL is designed to handle both open and closed cycles with ease.

CYCAL will function stand-alone; providing all the fluid property data at any given location in the cycle. However, when coupled with any of the Concepts 1D, meanline design tools in integrated mode, a step-change in value can be realized by affording the designer the capacity to simultaneously size the component while meeting the needs of the system.

v2023.0 New Software Releases

V2023.0 new release

Moving Beyond Traditional Turbomachinery Flow Paths and Shapes

White River Junction, VT, USA – November 1 , 2022 — Concepts NREC is pleased to announce the latest release of the Agile Engineering Design System® v2023.0 software for Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) specialized for turbomachinery.

The new version of our MAX-PAC™ CAM software delivers new surface milling capabilities to build and mill arbitrary surfaces that are not part of the bladed configuration. MAX-PAC v2023.0 also includes the addition of a Stock Chain Manager which enables you to easily calculate an operation’s remaining stock and use the stock in other operations and in simulations. These changes allow shops that rely on MAX-PAC to use it for work beyond just the bladed components and minimize the time wasted developing toolpaths in other systems to merge with MAX-PAC.

Concepts NREC has improved all of our CAE codes with a focus on secondary flow paths including seals, swirl breaks and pump-out vanes. Automated optimization is now easier than ever with new improvements to TurboOpt II. Rocket engine designers now have new models for the impacts of secondary flows on performance and thrust as well as the ability to design stages that include both inducers and impellers.

Dr. Peter Weitzman, President of Agile Engineering Software commented “Users who upgrade to v2023.0 will find new capabilities that will make them more efficient and allow them to design and manufacture products that were not possible with earlier software.”

Version 2023.0 is available now for active Agile™ Product Support (APS) members to download. To schedule a live demo or request a trial license  contact sales@conceptsnrec.com.
