ANSYS TurboGrid software includes novel technology that targets complete automation combined with an unprecedented level of mesh quality for even the most complex blade shapes. The desired final mesh size is defined (and, optionally, the blade boundary layer resolution), and all the other steps are performed automatically to produce a mesh of extremely high quality. Grid angles are exceptionally good, mesh sizes transition smoothly, and high aspect-ratio elements are generated in the near-wall regions to resolve these regions efficiently and capture boundary layer flows accurately.
New time-saving hybrid meshing capabilities simplify process automation and allow for the complete meshing of complex blade models. Hybrid meshing can be used to create conformal mesh for blade tips to account for motion due to flutter and for secondary flow paths and axisymmetric cavities. More applications are planned for future releases.
