The Institute for Thermal Turbomachinery and Machine Dynamics specializes in research and education in the field of compressors, gas and steam turbine. Large test facilities are available including a 3 MW compressor station . TUG's staff consists of highly skilled researchers and engineers with a background in analytical, numerical and experimental methods.
Unique two spool test turbine allows studying the different interaction mechanisms of high- and low pressure turbines including aeroelasticity and aeroacoustics. Application of various optical and standard diagnostic techniques possible. Rig was used in different EU Projects such as AIDA and DREAM. Now it allows the investigation of novel ITC concepts. TUG has great experience in investigating such components. A lot of papers are available on this subject.
