Turbomachinery Software Solutions


Concepts NREC provides an “art to part” software tool chain that enables every step in the turbomachinery development workflow.

Our design software solutions empower users with full creative control over the “art” of turbomachinery design. These solutions provide an agile interface for 1D and 3D conceptual design and integrated analysis tools to verify performance and durability. We also provide optimization solutions that work in conjunction with our products to expand the design space to make the probable possible.

For those looking to make their concept a hardware reality, our machining software solutions can be utilized to generate the most accurate and efficient tool path for the “part”. The vertical integration of these solutions with the rest of the Agile product suite allows the user to go from digital to physical while simultaneously minimizing overall design time, optimizing the manufacturing process, and achieving superior performance.

Regardless of what type of turbomachine you are creating, we have a solution catered to overcoming its unique challenges.

Proven Expertise

The full power and benefit of our turbomachinery design & manufacturing software suite is realized when the various modules are used together. The suite seamlessly transfers information between modules with the click of a button, saving time and eliminating the possibility of transfer errors. It also facilitates easy transfer at any step of the process to all major CAD formats and other third-party CFD and FEA packages.
Final designs can then be easily imported into our industry-leading CAM software, MAX-PAC, to create efficient 5-axis machining solutions.
Our integrated design and manufacturing software tools provide designers with a cost-effective, concurrent development approach that balances issues of performance, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and manufacturability.

Agile Products Support (APS)

APS is Concepts NREC’s software maintenance and support program that elevates us from just a software provider to a valued partner. 

An APS subscription is included with all annual licenses and is a highly-recommended option for perpetual software licenses. Every software customer is supported for one month following purchase for any installation questions that may arise. Learn more on the Agile Products Support Membership Benefits Datasheet

The Gyroscopic Effect
by Thomas Gresham, Senior Mechanical Design Engineer
This post covers one of the fundamental issues that makes rotordynamics a unique subject: The Gyroscopic Effect. The gyroscopic effect can be observed in the behavior of spinning tops, fidget spinners, inertial navigation systems, and many types of turbomachinery. If you have ever tried to tilt an object while it is spinning, then you may have noticed this effect.

Part 2: Hydrogen Turbomachinery Design
by Mark R. Anderson, Chief Technical Officer, Concepts NREC
Hydrogen is attracting a lot of interest in different circles these days from: propulsion, to energy storage, to personal transportation. The most obvious benefit of hydrogen fuel is a total lack of carbon in the exhaust products. This is rare for a fuel that’s a fairly high energy substance to begin with. More specifically, its high energy in terms of energy per unit of weight but somewhat less so in terms of volume.

Part 1: Hydrogen and Turbomachinery
by Dr. David Schowalter, Sr. Director, Global Software Sales
Because of its promise as a non-polluting fuel, hydrogen is currently a very popular topic among the energy and turbomachinery communities. If hydrogen is reacted with pure oxygen, the thermal energy release is significant, and water is the only by-product. This highly exothermic reaction was used to get humanity to the moon. Of course, nitrous oxides (NOx) can be released if hydrogen is burned in air. If, on the other hand, the energy from the reaction is converted to heat and electricity in a fuel cell, then only water vapor is discharged. In addition, when pressurized in a tank, hydrogen is an easily transportable fuel, and so is desirable for transportation.
