What We Do

The Turbo and Jet Engine laboratory serves as a center of excellence for several gas turbine and jet engine related subjects. For example combustion and control, two subjects with active and successful ongoing research programs. The Government has recognized the importance and potential of the laboratory for its development programs related to jet engines and has invested within the last 2 years significant amounts in specific instrumentations, which amount to about 450,000 US$.

Activities within the laboratory are also related to international collaboration, mainly with European industries and research institutes. The laboratory is collaborating in an international research program – FLOXCOM through a European Consortium where it also act as the Coordinator for the consortium of seven additional institutes from five EU countries. The FLOXCOM objectives are mainly focused on minimizing the emission of pollutants (NOx) and on improving the operating stability of low emission gas turbine combustors. These projects require large experimental efforts carried out in the well-equipped and modern laboratory. The Turbo and Jet Engine Laboratory encourages and stimulates continued international collaboration with leading scientists from around the globe, and serves as a center of excellence for national (and hopefully even international) combustion, compressor dynamics and control related research work.
