The Project

Have a look at the poster for the project

The project was the design of an experimental assembly capable of imitating the operation of a turboshaft gas turbine in a laboratory, for the exploration of novel technologies for the reduction of the formation of oxides of nitrogen within the combustion chamber (such as the injection of water into the combustion zone).

The Design

The design manufactured was an experimental assembly of a turboshaft gas turbine engine capable of demonstrating the physical effect of novel technologies particular to the combustion processes (such as the injection of water into the combustion zone) on a variety of overall performance parameters, with a focus on considering the effect of these technologies on the reduction of the production of greenhouse gasses such as oxides of nitrogen, whilst having a negligible effect on system performance.
The design presented was a simplified version of a ‘state-of-the-art’ gas turbine combustion chamber, assembled with other products to make an experimental rig capable of imitating a full-scale gas turbine.
