Capabilities/Tools
Candent Technologies has a complete suite of tools for the design and analysis of any gas turbine engine component, and the experience to recognize the when the analysis is not leading in the correct direction.  Major capabilities available at Candent Technologies include;
  • Engine Performance Analysis
    Candent Technologies uses state of the art engine cycle analysis tools to define engine performance at all potential conditions using the NASA Engine Performance Program.  Engine component off-design performance maps can be synthesized using NASA preliminary aerodynamic analysis tools in order to obtain excellent off-design performance predictions prior to the first build of the component.
  •  Component Preliminary Design Synthesis
    Candent Technologies has a complete suite of preliminary design synthesis tools for preliminary design of rotating and static engine aerodynamic components that were developed by NASA.  These tools allow an engine or component to be quickly defined using basic 2d design parameters and provide excellent correlation to real world performance.
  • Component Design
    Candent Technologies employs a paperless design system using state of the art UGS CAD design products.  All design is done in three dimensional models and many parts are created from castings directly produced from our solid models.
  • Structural Analysis
    Structural analysis is performed using the Femap structural and dynamic analysis program, in addition to a number of NASA developed tools for analysis of rotating system dynamics and gear design. 
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
    Candent Technologies uses a variety of CFD tools to perform specific fluid dynamic design tasks.  In addition to NASA developed tools for blade to blade analysis we employ state of the art tools for duct flow and loss determination.
  • Heat Transfer and Secondary Flow
    Extensive experience in heat transfer and secondary flow is aided by state of the art tools for setting up flow grids and designing state of the art secondary flow systems.
  • Design Expertise
    The analysis and design experts at Candent Technologies each have over 25 years of design and engine development experience.  When it comes to designing anything from a simple rotor, to a complete engine, this team has done it before, multiple times.  The capability to move quickly through the design process, guided by experience with what works, is invaluable in "getting it right the first time".
