Organizer: Istanbul Technical University, von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics
Application Areas: Turbomachinery
Special Fields: Fluid Mechancis
Type of Event: Conference, International

The scope of the conference covers from a scientific and engineering perspective, the fluid dynamics and thermodynamics involved in improving the performance, stability and sustainability characteristics in the design, development and operation of axial, mixed flow and radial turbomachines:

  • Aero-jet engines
  • Aviation and industrial gas turbines
  • Steam turbines
  • Compressors and fans
  • Hydraulic turbines and pumps
  • Non conventional turbines (wind, Wells, Arrhenius, ….)

Particular emphasis will be given to the following areas:

  • Aerodynamic and Hydrodynamic Flows
  • Turbulent and transitional flows
  • Two phase and wet steam flows
  • Particle paths, deposition and erosion effects
  • Real working fluid flows
  • Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Cooling and Leakage
  • Heat transfer and turbine cooling
  • Turbine internal and external (film) cooling flows and losses
  • The effects of rotation, unsteadiness and temperature non uniformities
  • Leakage and sealing flows
  • Unsteady Flows and Interactions
  • Surge, stall and transients
  • Rotor-stator interactions and multi-row effects
  • Vibration, forced response, flutter and aero-elasticity
  • Separation and cavitation
  • Aero-acoustics, noise generation and reduction
  • Turbomachinery Design, Performance and Operation
  • Design, analysis and optimisation
  • Performance predictions
  • Active and passive flow control, including MEMS
  • Testing, measurement techniques and experimental validation
  • Operational experience and performance monitoring
  • Diagnostics, deterioration and residual performance/life prediction

This international conference is organized on a bi-annual basis by the national engineering association of the country in which the conference takes place.
