The in­sti­tute's re­search and de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties fo­cus on the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of air-breath­ing tur­bo air­craft en­gines in terms of ef­fi­cien­cy, weight, pol­lu­tant and noise emis­sions.

As a re­sult of the tur­bine de­vel­op­ment in re­cent years, a new tur­bine test bench will be es­tab­lished in the Göt­tin­gen de­part­ment, which is ca­pa­ble of sim­u­lat­ing the most im­por­tant flow pa­ram­e­ters of fu­ture high-per­for­mance tur­bines on the one hand and on the oth­er hand large enough to al­low de­tailed mea­sure­ments to be car­ried out in the flow field or on the mod­el tur­bine.

Project PERFEKT

De­sign of a geared tur­bo­fan en­gine car­ried out with the vir­tu­al en­gine plat­form GT­lab (Gas Tur­bine Lab­o­ra­to­ry), the pre­lim­i­nary de­sign en­vi­ron­ment for air­craft en­gines and gas tur­bines. The con­cept was cre­at­ed as part of the in­ter­dis­ci­plinary project PER­FEKT (Pre­lim­i­nary De­sign and Eval­u­a­tion of Fu­ture En­gine Con­cepts).

DLR's Institute of Propulsion Technology carries out its research at its facilities in Cologne, Berlin, Göttingen and Trauen on the development of high-performance and environmentally friendly aircraft engines and power plant turbines. The research work includes both the development and application of highly efficient methods and fast simulation procedures as well as the use of unique test stands and sophisticated measurement procedures. The research topics concern efficiency, developmental risk, safety and environmental aspects as exhaust and noise emission reduction.
