Research for a better world

PETAL aims to pioneer the transition to a world where all propulsion and power generation is clean, for our children, through creative and rigorous research in high-speed internal flows in cooperation with US and international teams.

The team combines expertise on Measurement techniques, Experimental testing procedures, Theoretical calculations, and Computational analysis with a focus on research and development for turbines and novel thermal-based cycles.


The laboratory is located in the Zucrow Laboratories; we offer precise aerothermal measurements of high-speed internal flows. This webpage provides a basic overview of the ongoing activities.
