Company to present on designing with Agile Engineering Design System® and an info session on the Advanced Pump and Compressor Consortium.

Concepts NREC (CN), a world leader in turbomachinery design and development, is announcing today that it will exhibit at the 42nd Turbomachinery Symposium / 29th Pump Symposium in Booth #814, October 1-3, 2013 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.

At this event Dr. David Japikse, CEO of CN, will be holding presentations and a Q&A on the Advanced Pump and Compressor Consortium for Diffuser and Volute Design. This year, CN has launched Phase VI of this highly-successful Consortium, obtaining 14 Sponsors in the first round and initiating work in June. “Advanced diffuser design is essential for meeting the demands of today's marketplace and the results of this program will be applicable across the board for all turbomachinery - particularly high performance pumps and compressors,” says Japikse.

The second round of sponsorship is open and two presentations are scheduled to be held during the Symposia in Meeting Room 380D at the GRB Convention Center:

  •      Tuesday, October 1st @ 4:00 PM
  •      Wednesday, October 2nd @ Noon

Also, CN Lead Software Engineering Trainer / Project Manager, Dr. Shuo Li, will be presenting “Your Complete Turbomachinery Design Solution — Concepts NREC’s Agile Engineering Design System®” on the Symposia’s Turbo Stage on Wednesday, October 2nd at 5:00 PM. In this presentation, Li will cover how CN’s AEDS software can provide design engineers everywhere with the tools to create high performance axial and radial turbomachinery from preliminary to detailed design, optimization, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM).

Additionally, CN Engineering Services consultants will be available to discuss the company’s innovations in the development of a modular Organic Rankine Cycle technology platform. CN Engineering Sales Manager, Jim McNamara, says, “We’re excited to continue the development of ORC technology, as it has so many possible applications including waste heat recovery, biomass power plants, geothermal plants, and solar thermal power plants, to name just a few. We continue to strive toward greater efficiency in order to make it a feasible investment for our customers.”

CN’s Software division will also be on hand to provide information about the various improvements and upgrades — including new features and functionality — to the next version of the Agile Engineering Design System® software, planned for release later this year. “We look forward to providing a glimpse into the enhancements being made to our Agile Engineering Design System software, as we continually work to develop software that will help reduce the amount of time it takes to design turbomachinery while still achieving the highest level of quality,” says George Zitka, Managing Director.
