For the calculation of stress, temperature and vibration in turbomachinery
the finite element analysis software ALGOR
is applied. This software offers an integrated CAD/FEA
environment which allows an efficient working with imported CAD models.
The FEA packages available at the institute include static stress analysis with linear and
nonlinear material models, natural frequency (modal) analysis, steady-state and transient heat
transfer analysis as well as mechanical event simulation.
