An automated turbomachinery design and optimization system is introduced. An existing splittered transonic fan is used as a test case. The flow path and the geometrical properties of the rotor are initially created using one dimensional and axi-symmetric design analysis code. The blades are parametrically designed using a three dimensional blade geometry builder (3DBGB) which includes a large design space with few parameters. The solid model creation of the rotor sector with periodic boundaries is automated using MATLAB code directly connected to SolidWorks. A mechanical optimization is performed using ANSYS Static Structural Module to ensure the blade(s) meets the given strength constraints with mass minimization. Once accepted, a CFD optimization is performed to evaluate efficiency and stall margin objective functions.
