Welcome to PETAL
The mission of PETAL is to expand the bounds of scientific understanding by setting a world standard for turbine aerothermal research, education, and testing with strong international collaborations. Our vision is to develop and mature advanced aerothermal designs, novel measurement techniques, and state-of-the-art testing procedures for turbines. The team combines experimental, theoretical, and computational expertise with a focus on research and development for gas turbines, hybrid thermo-electrical engines, and new thermal-based cycles.
The laboratory is located in the Zucrow Laboratories, in collaboration with the team of Prof. Meyer we offer high-frequency laser diagnostic capabilities. This webpage provides a basic overview of the ongoing activities.
