The scope of the conference covers the scientific and engineering fluid
dynamic and thermodynamic problems in the design, development and
operation of axial and radial turbomachinery.

  • Aero and industrial gas turbines
  • Steam turbines
  • Compressors and fans
  • Hydraulic turbines and pumps

    Particular emphasis will be given to the following areas :

    • Aerodynamic and Hydrodynamic Flows

      • Turbulent and transitional flows
      • Two phase and wet steam flows
      • Particle paths, deposition and erosion effects

    • Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Cooling and

      • Heat transfer and turbine cooling
        vTurbine internal and external (film) cooling flows and losses
      • The effects of rotation, unsteadiness and temperature non uniformities
      • Leakage and sealing flows

        • Unsteady Flows and Interactions

          • Surge, stall and transients
          • Rotor-stator interactions and multi-row effects
          • Vibration, forced response, flutter and aero-elasticity
          • Separation and cavitation
          • Aero-acoustics, noise generation and reduction

          • Turbomachinery Design, Performance and

            • Design, analysis and optimisation
            • Performance predictions
            • Active flow control, including MEMS
            • Testing, measurement techniques and experimental validation
            • Operational experience and performance monitoring
            • Diagnostics, deterioration and life

          The presentations should describe new experimental and/or theoretical work emphasising the contribution to
          theory, design methods and optimisation, reliability and operability. For example, the latest developments in
          three-dimensional methods, unsteady flows and interaction effects would be of prime interest. Consistent with
          the objective of European technology exchange, the European Commission strongly encourages researchers
          involved in EC programmes to take this excellent opportunity to present papers demonstrating the technical
          progress of their projects.



Additional Information

Synopses of papers should be received no later than 1 April 2004. Authors are asked to indicate on the reverse of the reply form the category which their paper will apply to. Selected authors will be invited to submit full papers of up to ten pages, including references and diagrams, by 6 September 2004.

The conference papers will be written and presented in English. All papers will undergo a thorough review process. All offers of papers will be considered by the Organising Committee, but final acceptance will depend on the Committee’s decision based on revised camera ready mats and subject to its receipt by 14 January 2005.

The author of any paper will be expected to present the paper at the conference. Should the author be unable to present, it will be necessary to provide a replacement.
