“IRIS” is a computerized design and structural optimization system capable of generating all the major hydraulic and mechanical design parameters of high head pump/turbines from limited input data. The program will size the unit and select the proper hydraulic passage configuration according to performance requirements and optimize the dimensions of all the major components, generate command tapes used by a numerically controlled flame cutter, estimate cost, and issue manufacturing process planning. It also generates finite element models for the “in depth” analysis of critical components.
