Flownex® is capable of modelling large complex secondary air systems using the library of rotating components. However, the complexity of these systems results in many dimensions and in turn results in many geometric inputs on the Flownex® components used to model these systems. The latest Flownex® release contains major enhancements to the scale drawing functionality. This allows the user to link measurements on the drawing canvas directly to user inputs on the rotating components. Linking inputs to measurements reduces the amount of time the user needs to spend entering in geometry and also greatly reduces the chance of making an error in the inputs.

Flownex®’s updated scale drawing functionality allows for faster building of gas turbine secondary air system networks.


Additional Information:

This webinar will demonstrate how the scaled drawing functionality can be used to link measurements from a drawing to component inputs. As this functionality is especially useful in the modelling secondary air systems in gas turbine engines the webinar will demonstrate the usefulness of this functionality when modelling these systems.

(Note: This functionality is however not limited to this application and can be used with any Flownex® components when modelling any typical industrial system).

The previous webinar on modelling secondary air systems (https://www.flownex.com/webinar-videos/item/26-jun-17-rapid-design-of-cooling-flow-paths-for-turbo) serves as a good example of the systems being modelled and the components that will be used.
