Powering Up Complexity: Whole-Engine Turbomachinery Performance

Assessing thermal-mechanical performance takes more than looking at the individual components separately. You must consider whole engine. How do you go about doing that as efficiently as possible? Hint: one engineer working alone to develop a whole engine model won’t cut it. A better approach to accelerating performance engineering is to divide the workload into sub-assemblies and combine models in assembly FEMs.
