AutoGrid5™

Numeca's Automatic Full Hex Multi-block Structured Meshing Software for Multi-stage

Turbomachinery

 

Description

AutoGrid5™ is a full automatic hexahedral grid generator for all types of rotating machinery: complex axial, radial, and mixed-flow configurations. AutoGrid5™ produces grids in a few minutes, with a few clicks through a wizard based interface.

This product is part of AutoMesh™.

Key Features

  1. Optimized topologies according to geometrical configurations;
  2. Automatic grid points distribution according to user's grid size requirements;
  3. Free user-defined topologies;
  4. Advanced smoothing algorithms yielding a high grid quality;
  5. Multistage and bypass configurations;
  6. Capturing a large range of geometrical features, such as tip and hub clearance, seal-leakages, rounded and blunt leading and trailing edge, spinners, flow path discontinuities, rotor/stator, inner/row interfaces, non-axisymmetric end walls, bleed ports, cooling holes, tip basins, part-span shroud, etc.
  7. Grid wake refinement;
  8. Full connectivity with IGG™ (NUMECA's general structured multiblock grid generator), allowing to interactively mesh up- and downstream components such as nozzle, volute, ducts, condensers, etc.;
  9. Advanced template and script technology for automated meshing of features such as fillets, leakage paths, cavities, etc.
