NSI TechPoint: Flutter analysis of a centrifugal compressor. Made with Cadence

This webinar will provide an introduction to flutter analysis in centrifugal compressors using advanced CFD techniques in frequency domain such as NLH approach by Cadence.
Centrifugal compressors are widely used in various industries such as oil and gas, chemical, and power generation. Flutter, a phenomenon in which the compressor blades undergo self-excited vibration due to aerodynamic forces, is a critical issue that can lead to severe damage to the compressor and its associated components. Therefore, it is important to predict and prevent flutter for optimal operation and maintenance of centrifugal compressors.

The webinar will cover the basics of flutter, the principles of CFD, and its application in flutter analysis. It will also discuss the various techniques used for flutter analysis, such as modal analysis, unsteady CFD simulations, and frequency response analysis. The webinar will also showcase case studies and examples of how flutter analysis has helped in the design and optimization of centrifugal compressors.

By attending this webinar, you will gain a better understanding of flutter analysis and its importance in the design and operation of centrifugal compressors. You will also learn about the latest techniques and tools used for flutter analysis and how they can be applied in your own projects. This webinar is suitable for engineers, designers, and researchers involved in the design, operation, and maintenance of centrifugal compressors.
