a tool interface for the design of screw compressors. It reduces effort and speeds
up the design process by enabling the integration and interoperability of
software components used. Therefore software required to produce
three-dimensional CAD models and manufacturing drawings are parametrically
connected with the calculation of internal heat and fluid flow processes and
the estimation of stresses and strains within the solid components. The
number of input parameters required to describe the machine geometry and
operating conditions is thereby reduced and these need only to be specified
once for all the design software used. As a result, control of the design
process is simplified and modifications made to the compressor model at any
design stage can be cross referenced through all the software components.
Such an approach saves both computer resources and time when compared with
traditional design procedures.
