Francis water turbines are the modern equivalent of water wheels that have been used over centuries for power generation. These devices are becoming essential for an environmentally-friendly and clean source of power and thus have evolved into complex designs that need to meet certain requirements in terms of performance and power output. This requires an ongoing optimization of the design of different components. Fluid flow simulation (CFD) is an alternative to complex, conventional development processes consisting of design development, prototype construction, and experimental validation.
In this demo, you will learn how the SimScale cloud-based simulation platform enables any engineer to leverage the potential of CFD for their projects in the field of Rotating Machinery and learn how to analyze and optimize the design and performance of a Francis water turbine.
