Header and Body 1


The MTFLOW (Multielement Through-FLOW) system is a collection of programs for analysis and design of single- or multi-element axisymmetric bodies and ducts. The primary purpose is the simulation of axisymmetric propulsor flows with moving or stationary blade rows. The blade rows are modeled by actuator volumes with specified total enthalpy and entropy source fields, and mass blockage fields. A blade camber surface geometry can also be specified in the actuator volume to make the local field sourses depend on the wheel speed and the local flow.
