A new aerodynamic design system has been developed that includes a through-flow solver for fans, axial compressors and turbines, and radial compressors and turbines. Three earlier papers gave an overview of the system and described the interactive interface and geometry generators. This paper focuses on several special features in the through-flow solver that provide increases in aerodynamic designer productivity. Some of the key features are stations decoupled from flow paths, ability to accept a wide variety of input parameters, use of gas property routines, ability to inject flow non-uniformly with a different composition than the main flow gas composition, ability to access information from several airfoil geometry generator solutions, and clear, comprehensive error handling. These special features and others have provided major savings from productivity improvements and reductions in design cycle time.
