42 The Design and Construction of a Self Sustaining Radial Flow Gas Turbine
- Dr Bassam Dally and Associate Prof Gus Nathan
- Dr Ben Cazzolato
- Number of Students:
- Matthew Hochman, Mark Leane and Simon Nitschke
- The primary project aim of the project the design and construction of a compact, self-sustaining radial flow gas turbine. The project will be centred around the theoretical design, development, construction and preliminary optimisation of the combustion chamber. The compressor and turbine assemblies will be adapted from an automotive turbocharger.
