GE Aircraft Engines - Combustor Design & ANSYS ICEM CFD

The design of an aircraft engine combustor is a multidisciplinary process involving aero CFD, combustion, heat transfer CFD, dynamics, thermal, mechanical and life prediction. In order to meet aggressive new product introduction (NPI) analysis requirements, GE Global Research Center has been collaborating with GE Aircraft Engines to develop advanced combustor design technologies. In particular, a multidisciplinary design optimization has been conducted for an aircraft engine combustor structure. In addition to several enabling technologies, automated meshing strategies using ANSYS ICEM CFD™ Hexa were developed and high quality all-hex meshes were generated for a full combustor sector model.  ANSYS ICEM has been GE's key mesh generating software solution since 2000.
