March 26, 2015, Rybinsk. - Problems of strategic partnering in the development of industrial technologies based on numerical modeling and design process optimization were treated in the frame of section No. 2 “The use of computer-aided engineering in the design of aircraft engines” under the format “The industry, research institutes, higher learning institutions-engineering companies and software developers.”
The section brought together the participants from NPO Saturn, the Saratov Engineering Center, the Baranov CIAM, PLM-Urals, Mentor Graphics, the Samara State Aerospace University, NUMECA, MSC.Software, the S.S. Kutateladze Thermal Physics Institute of the RAS, Siemens Industry Software, CADFEM CIS, KinTech Lab and Tesis. 20 dedicated reports were presented in the course of the section.
Topical issues were raised with regard to the gas turbine engine thermal process theory, modeling technologies including the use of the CAD-integrated FloEFD technology used for enhancing the effectiveness of computer-aided engineering. The experts from Saratov made a presentation under the title “A calculation-experiment-based survey of dynamic deformation of the case in the event of the LPC stage one blade-out” while the representatives of MSC.Software familiarized their colleagues with the gas turbine engine acoustics analysis using the Actran system. The section also served as a venue for studying the specifics of industrial application of such software packages as Noisette, Flow Vision, Sigma Flow and many others. Following the results of the section, an agreement on scientific and technical collaboration was signed between NPO Saturn and one of the companies.
The section moderator Roman Didenko, head of the engineering analyses systems design department at NPO Saturn noted that “our company is faced with a task of decreasing labor intensiveness and increasing the modeling level of precision with relation to complex processes in designing gas turbine engines. Stern competition in the industry forces us not only to meet the requirements on improving the engine specific performance but also to solve the problems related to decreasing the weight, improving maintainability, decreasing the life-cycle cost, ensuring reliability and also the efficient use of work time by design engineers and calculators. I’m convinced that these tasks can be solved only through working together and collaborating with research institutes, software developers, higher learning institutions, engineering companies whereby an industrial company must act as the process integrator. All the reports presented during the section were interesting and meaningful; I wish to thank everyone for the expressed opinions, ideas, experience and look forward to a fruitful collaboration.”
The NPO Saturn Research and Production Association (OJSC) is an engine-manufacturing company specialized in the design and development, production, and after-market support of gas turbine engines for military and commercial aviation, naval ships, and power-generating plants and gas-pumping units. The association is part of the Union of Russian Mechanical Engineers, an All-Russian public organization.
NPO Saturn is part of United Engine Corporation (JSC) and acts as the leader of the Commercial Engines Division, a business unit of UEC founded on 09.10.2012 as a result of integration of the following companies: NPO Saturn (OJSC), Aviadvigatel (OJSC), PMZ (OJSC), Metallist-PM (CJSC), Energetik-PM (OJSC), Motoservis-PM (CJSC), and Zheleznodorozhnik-PM (CJSC).
United Engine Corporation (JSC) (a Rostec State Corporation company) is an integrated organization specialized in the design and development, serial production, and after-market support of the engines for military and commercial aviation, space programs, the Navy, as well as for the oil and gas industry, and power generation. One of UEC’s prioritized fields of activity is the implementation of comprehensive programs of development of the companies in the industry by introducing new technologies meeting the world-class standards. In 2013 revenues of the corporation amounted to RUB 158.9 billion.
The Rostec State Corporation is a Russian corporation established in 2007 in order to facilitate the development, manufacturing, and export of high-technology industrial products of military and commercial application. Today, it comprises over 700 companies, which form 9 defense-industrial and 5 civil industry holdings, as well as 22 direct control companies. The Rostec portfolio includes such renowned brands as AVTOVAZ, KAMAZ, Russian Helicopters, VSMPO-AVISMA, etc. Rostec’s subsidiaries are located in 60 regions of Russia and deliver their products to over 70 countries worldwide.
