Axial-Centrifugal Compressors

Axial-Centrifugal Compressors:

Simerics-MP+ can be used to predict the performance of Compressors as well as Pumps and has been validated by comparison with experimental data. The advantage of using Simerics-MP+ for Compressors is the ease and ability of the general mesher to create a mesh, even for a complex geometry, and the speed of the simulation which has been reported to be 10-30 times faster that the competition.(Testimonial)
