Welcome back to our first year students, back in Cambridge for their second mini-project of the term

last modified Feb 10, 2016 12:01 PM

Our students have returned to Cambridge for the second of five mini-projects. This project is based on a series of experimental tests of a rotating axial compressor facility. During the 3 weeks, students will assess the performance of the compressor with and without circumferential non-uniformity. These non-uniformities often arise in real machines due to “installation effects” and their impact on the behaviour of the compressor, particularly the flow rate at which the compressor stalls, is of interest.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics is an exciting new partnership between universities and industry that will provide a unique turbomachinery training and research experience for graduate students.
