Flowmaster V7 Gas Turbine
Advanced Gas Turbine System Modelling & Simulation

Built upon the Flowmaster V7 platform, V7 Gas Turbine combines the same proven architecture with advanced functionality for modelling the complex systems found in Gas Turbines including:

  • Full Cavity Heat Transfer to model the secondary air system, enabling the effects on the air and rotating disks to be understood.
  • Swirl Solver capability for simulation of the swirl induced by the rotating components
  • Cavity Wizard steps through the creation of a cavity model.
  • Total Pressure and Total Temperature are reported in the Rotating Frame of Reference for all secondary air rotating components .
  • Catalogue of industry specific component models including Labyrinth seal components
  • Multi-Fluid Simulation capability for modelling the mixing and/or separation of multiple liquids or gases. This enables fuel system engineers to model the vent lines and inerting systems of gas turbine fuel systems and IGCC power plants.

Simulation Data Control

  • Secure storage of networks, performance data, components and results centrally in an industry standard relational database
  • Audit trail of model design history
  • Open API and SDK development tools for extending and integrating into existing product development and optimisation systems.
