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.

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.

Faster further development of steam turbines with new calculation methods

Ex­treme­ly pre­cise and fast: In 2016, DLR, to­geth­er with the Zit­tau/Gör­litz Uni­ver­si­ty of Ap­plied Sci­ences and the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Dres­den, de­vel­oped a pro­cess that sim­u­lates the flow of wa­ter vapour in tur­bo­ma­chin­ery with high pre­ci­sion and 10 times faster than be­fore.

The research work carried out at the Institute of Propulsion Technology is strictly focused on the improvement of gas turbines in aviation and electric power generation by medium- to long-term exploitation of the inherent technical potentials. All current R&T projects focus on the needs and requirements of society and industry, primarily concerning efficiency, developmental risk, safety and environmental aspects as exhaust and noise emission reduction.
