Rand Simulation Launches Turbomachinery Offering
The company has enhanced its collaborative consulting and overall business practice to include expertise focused on the turbomachinery industry.
June 20, 2019
Rand Simulation (Rand SIM), a new division of Rand Worldwide that provides ANSYS software solutions and consulting services—computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA) and electromagnetic simulation (EMAG)—has launched new capabilities to help manufacturing organizations leverage the benefits of simulation.
“We are pleased to announce that we have expanded our collaborative consulting and overall business practice to include expertise focused on the turbomachinery industry,” says Jason Pfeiffer, senior director for Rand Simulation. “Our combination of collaborative consulting and leading CFD tools help turbomachinery companies avoid moving from 1D flow simulations straight to costly prototyping.
“With simulation technology, we can help them discover potential problem areas with their design, identify and test a variety of solutions resulting in a design that is ready for prototyping all during the drawing phase when cost of change is minimal,” Pfeiffer adds.
For companies in fields related to turbomachinery, Rand Simulation’s team of experts can offer proof of concept; problem detection and baseline comparison/benefit quantification.
“Although the turbomachinery design field was one of the earliest adopters of CFD, the innovation in modern design tools with full system and full physics analysis has once again dramatically changed the opportunity for both large and small turbomachinery companies,” says Adam Weaver, turbomachinery CFD specialist for Rand Simulation. “Today’s CFD tools, such as those from ANSYS, are affordable and, with the proper training and support from experienced simulation consultants, can deliver staff efficiencies, drive design innovation and dramatically reduce costs.”
