The biannual symposium on Measuring Techniques in Turbomachinery has reached its XX edition, and it will take place for the third time in Italy. After the VKI Symposium in 2008, the 2010 edition of the Symposium will be organized by the Politecnico di Milano. In the wake of the recent editions, the Symposium will not be limited to transonic applications, but will cover a wide spread of topics, from improvement of classical measurement techniques to novel-concept applications, from optical to intrusive techniques, from novel test rig designs to novel data-reduction methods, from large-scale to micro-sensor applications.
The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers from universities, research institutes and industry to get together, discuss problems and share experiences involved in making measurements in turbomachines. The symposium covers the development of measurement techniques for the study of aero-thermal phenomena in components such as cascades, compressors, turbines, engines and power plants.
This XX biannual symposium on Measuring Techniques in Turbomachinery will be hosted by the Energy Department of the Politecnico di Milano on the 23rd and 24th
of September 2010.
The aim of the Symposium, this year, is to produce a snapshot of the state-of-art of experimental technologies in turbomachines, and to evaluate its impact on the industrial development of
turbomachines. The sessions will be arranged as workshops where discussions between the presenter and researchers will be promoted.
The Symposium scheduling will provide time, in formal and informal sessions, for discussion on the current problems related to shortages or failures in the different approaches to trigger solutions and/or alternative procedures. An electronic copy (on a USB key) of all the papers will be distributed to all the participants at the beginning of the Symposium.
