Project: Research project

Description

This project will provide a breakthrough in low noise and low emission engine architectures. VITAL will achieve this breakthrough by bringing together 53 actors from the European engine industry made up of the leading engine manufactures, the engine-industry supply chain and key European research institutes.

For the VITAL-project we are currently building a new test rig for a low-pressure turbine with a section for acoustic measurements. Various laser techniques, an infrared camera system and standard diagnostic techniques are used for flow and vibration diagnostics.
