Practical Laboratory Thermal Turbomachinery

The next APMB tests and the Practical Laboratory Thermal Turbomachinery take place during the period December 2014 to February 2015. Registration period will begin in November 2014. The list of registration is provided in the ITSM foyer, Pfaffenwaldring 6.

Further up-to-date information for the Pracitcal Laboratory Thermal Turbomachinery is available here.

 

Axial fan
  • Announcement of the dates in november.

Flow measurements are performed for an axial fan. The results are used to create velocity triangles which will be embedded in the characteristic of the fan.

Gas turbine
  • Announcement of the dates in november.

The participating students investigate the performance of a gas turbine. Different quantities are measured for different operating conditions of the gas turbine and will be used to determine specific parameters.

Labyrinth seal
  • Announcement of the dates in november.

The participating students investigate a labyrinth seal to find out about the particular characteristics of this type of shaft seal.

Radial compressor
  • Announcement of the dates in november.

For different operating conditions in the characteristic map of a radial compressor, relevant quantities are measured and used to determine specific parameters.

Vibrations in turbomachinery
  • Announcement of the dates in november.

The vibrational behaviour is investigated for a single blade as well as for a rotating impeller.
