Test Rigs (IST)Copyright: © RWTH Aachen | IST
At present, there are seven machine foundations in the hall, on which new rotating large test stands are continuously being built. These test rigs represent an important pillar of the ongoing research work, as they are in most cases very extensively instrumented compared to industrially used machines.Copyright: © RWTH Aachen | IST
The test rigs include an axial compressor, which is based on a high-pressure compressor of a very modern engine, an axial turbine and three different radial compressors.
These are used in aircraft gas turbines, in process gas compressors or for turbocharging in marine or stationary combustion engines.
