  • Protecting engineering materials from water impact

    Erosion caused by the impact of water droplets on component surfaces can lead to failures in key technological applications. For example, in steam generating plants, the leading edge of turbine blades suffer major erosion damage from the steam driving the turbines, requiring costly maintenance and repair with consequent loss of generating capacity. Similarly, erosion caused by the impact of rain ...

  • Mixing processes below evaporation reduction covers - a use for the scamp and MSCTI

    Researchers from the Griffith School of Engineering at Griffith University in Australia are assessing a variety of methods for reducing the rate of evaporation. These methods include the implementation of a water cover and chemical films.PME’s MicroScale Conductivity and Temperature Instrument (MSCTI) and the Self Contained Autonomous MicroProfiler (SCAMP) are being used study mixing dynamics in ...

  • DOE Selects Ten Projects to Conduct Advanced Turbine Technology Research

    Ten university projects to conduct advanced turbine technology research under the Office of Fossil Energy’s University Turbine Systems Research (UTSR) Program have been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for additional development. Developing gas turbines that run with greater cleanness and efficiency than current models is of great benefit both to the environment and the power ...
