Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology

Graz University of Technology - Institute for Thermal Turbomachinery and Machine Dynamics

The Institute works on turbo machinery and on machine dynamics. The most intensive research work in the past years has been devoted to transonic turbines, intermediate turbine ducts and combustion chambers for aero engines. The Institute owns a large experimental facility including a 3 MW compressor station, allowing a continuous operation. Various laser techniques and optical systems are used.

Technologies and competences

Competences at the Institute are: aero engines - overall system, turbine aerodynamics (numerical and experimental), new aero engine concepts, aero engine acoustics, interaction between high pressure turbine and low pressure turbine (Mid Turbine Frame); noise propagation within the engine, analytical and experimental investigation of combustion chambers; emission analysis.
