CFD solution services for turbo-machinery industry
Responding to ever growing needs from customer, CCTech has added world's leading turbo-machinery analysis tool ANSYS CFX in its portfolio. Till December 2010, CCTech offered various CFD solution services based on ANSYS FLUENT - A general purpose fluid dynamics program. Over two decades of experience in rotating machinery simulation has ensured that ANSYS CFX software provides all the models and infrastructure for accurate, robust and efficient modeling of all types of pumps, fans, compressors, and gas and hydraulic turbines.

The transient rotor–stator capability of ANSYS CFX resolves the true transient interaction between components for maximum accuracy. It can be applied to individual pairs of blade passages or to the entire 360-degree machine. Setup and use is as simple as it is with the other frame-change models, and it is possible to combine transient and steady-state frame change interfaces in the same computation. Complementing this is the inclusion of second-order time differencing, which delivers greater transient accuracy. The stage interface model is a simpler model that provides faster solutions than the full transient rotor-stator model. It enables a steady-state computation to be used by performing circumferential averaging of the variables at the interface.
Various options are available to accurately capture transient interaction between rotating and stationary components. This includes a selection of transient blade row interaction models for modeling the interaction between components in which the number of blades is unequal and, therefore, the pitch-wise extent of the geometrically periodic blade passages is also unequal. This powerful set of models allows significantly faster solution times with reduced-memory requirement compared to transient simulations of the full blade rows.
Another way to model the interaction of rotating and stationary parts is with ANSYS CFX software's frozen-rotor model, which is useful when the circumferential flow variation that each blade passage experiences is large during a full revolution. With this option, computations are performed in a steady-state mode, based on the assumption of quasi-steady flow around the rotating component at every rotation angle. The additional rotational effects (Coriolis and centrifugal terms) are included in the rotating regions, and the frame change across the sliding interface is accommodated automatically when linking the different regions of the solution.

Vijay is COO and Co-Founder of CCTech and a product manager of simulationHub. Vijay's major contribution in a professional career is growing CCTech from team of two people to group of 30 technologists and now CCTech is a preferred partner to many engineering industries. At CCTech, Vijay looks after business development for CFD division and a member of technical review committee. Since the beginning of Vijay's professional career, he has the passion for making high-end technology accessible to common users and designers. First through CCTech training program on CFD and then through LearnCAx, he tried to make the CFD knowledge accessible to engineers. Now through simulationHub, he is aiming to give the power of simulation to every designer. Prior to CCTech, Vijay worked with ANSYS India (formerly Fluent India) in FloWizard development team. Vijay holds M.Tech. in Aerospace Engineering from IIT Bombay.
