SoftInWay, Inc. Supports Future Engineers Competing in TEKNOFEST 2019

Major turbomachinery software provider donates CAE platform to TEKNOFEST competitors.

BURLINGTON, Mass. - BostonChron -- SoftInWay, Inc. is proud to announce its sponsorship of more than 130 undergraduates and graduates from universities including İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi and Yıldız Teknik Üniversitesi who took part in the TEKNOFEST Turbofan Motor Design Competition; offering competitors access to the same software tools used by engineers at major companies such as Boeing, Safran, Orbex, Zunum, and Reaction Engines. These students competed in teams to design the best turbofan engine and win up to 50,000. Turkish lira: more than $8,500.00 USD.

Taking place in September 2019 at Istanbul New Airport, the 4-day festival was home to several competitions in addition to the first ever Turbofan Engine Design Competition, including the Mini Jet Radial Compressor Design Competition, Robotics Competitions, and UAV and Fighter-UAV Design Competitions.
Competitors in the Turbofan Engine Design Competition were required to prepare both a preliminary design and final design report. Finalists were then invited to present their results.

Using the AxSTREAM® Preliminary Design module, competitors entered the boundary conditions given and generated a range of dozens to thousands of designs which met the desired parameters. From there, the competitors designed their turbofan engine components in 1D, 2D, and 3D, performing design analysis and optimization along the way. First place went to ETU-Griffon of TOBB ETÜ, who created a 2-spool low-bypass turbofan engine design with an afterburner.

"This competition is and will continue to be a great opportunity for these young engineers in Turkey and around the world. They were able to compete for money, but they also received hands-on experience using a commercial software program implemented into numerous aerospace companies around the world for this exact application. By enabling engineering students to use commercial software for their original designs, the sky is the limit for what they can do. We created AxSTREAM® to foster healthy competition and drive innovation within the industry, giving companies the best tools possible to make revolutionary designs in addition to improving what already exists. These student competitors are getting a head-start on what they can expect in their aerospace engineering careers. We're very proud of the work they've done using AxSTREAM®." Said Dr. Leonid Moroz, founder and CEO of SoftInWay, Inc.
