Turbine Department

The Department of Turbine Aerodynamics is part of the Centre of Thermomechanics of Fluids, Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery, Polish Academy of Sciences, Gdańsk, Poland. The main interests of the department are problems of thermomechanics, exploitation, heat and flow diagnostics of turbines.

A selection of steam turbine blades

The specific research areas of the Turbine Department are aeromechanics, thermodynamics, exploitation and diagnostics of large power steam turbines as well as of ORC turbines. The scope of research covers also investigations of combustion of low caloric gases in piston engines and gas turbines and numerical modelling of flow, combustion and heat transfer in power machinery.
