Integrated design and optimization software environment for multistage turbomachinery, from preliminary design objective to full 3D blades and channel geometries, highly integrated with the multiphysics and multidisciplinary 3D CFD design and optimization systems FINETM/Turbo and FINETM/Design3D

AutoDesignTM is an integrated & optimization-based 1D-to-3D design software environment for multiphysics and multidisciplinary (CFD-FEA-CAA) design of turbomachinery. AutoDesignTM is a powerful tool dedicated to fast design and optimization of multistage machines starting from initial design objectives. Integrated with AutoGrid5TM , FINETM/Turbo and FINETM/Design3D, it offers an integrated chain from 1D to 3D, including aerodynamics, mechanics and aero-acoustics 1D-3D optimization.
AutoDesignTM is based on a novel and revolutionary approach, being the first in coupling advanced optimization methods with ultra-fast and accurate meshing and CFD and MDO solutions, enabling to design innovative optimal machine in very short time in one single software.

AutoDesignTM is powered by OMNISTM, NUMECA's new generation environment for multiphysics simulation and optimization, which offers the enhanced productivity of a cutting edge software.
