Innovative airfoils parametrization by verifying their performance in real time
Automatic generation of high-performing airfoil shapes for Wind Energy, Axial Compressors, Pumps and other applications
NablaFoil represents a new, innovative approach for the design of the airfoils. Elaborations from different discipline compose the tool. Some algorithms allow to parametrize the airfoil shapes using the most advanced mathematic representations. Through an interactive, real-time mode the user can adapt, by hand, the shape of the airfoil and check in real-time the performances. A neural network run in background in order to extrapolate the results from a huge database of airfoils. The database has been created using one of the most accurate panel code.
The main features are:
NablaFoil cuts across a broad range applications. Currently, it is used to generate high-performing airfoil shapes and it is easily coupled with 0D and 1D engineering codes for the estimation of performances. The main application fields are:
