  • Turbine Cascade Flow Rig with separate, low temperature coolant supply (Constructed in-lab, estimated time of completion Spring 2018)
  • Mettler Toledo DSC 3
  • Temperature/pressure-sensitive paint measurement system
  • Internal cooling passage flow bench; up to +/- 3.5 PSI available pressure head, or 600 CFM maximum flow rate
  • Steady and unsteady flow instrumentation (pressures, temperatures, velocities) with manual and automated traverse
