The Turbine Department, located in Göttingen, but part of the Institute of Propulsion Technology, is responsible for research in turbine flow.In close cooperation with industry research is carried out with respect to performance improvement and increase of specific power of turbines and investigations concerning heat transfer and cooling effectiveness.
The Turbine Department is involved in European and national research projects on turbomachines, esp. Turbine Aerodynamics, Thermodynamics and in investigations of turbine blade performance as a service for industrial partners. Current projects are listed below:
Experimental Facilities To investigate the phenomena of especially transonic turbine flows, high quality tools are needed.
