N&R Engineering has recently added a new project to our Current Work portfolio: Physics-Based MDAO Tool for CMC Blades and Vanes Conceptual Design

The proposed work entails developing a reliability analysis tool consistent with conceptual-level design for ceramic matrix composite (CMC) turbine blades and vanes. The analysis software will comprise a suite of physics-based discipline specific analysis code modules. The objective of this analysis tool is to develop optimal material properties, internal and external geometries for a cooled vane/blade using aerothermal, and structural (including creep) analyses.
