The objective of the P&WC Industrial Research Chair on Propulsion (2011-2020) program is to deploy a fully automated and integrated Turbine System Optimizer (TSO) that is capable of finding the optimal balance between aerodynamic performance, cooling flows, durability, cost, weight, etc. in order to achieve the best product performances.

The resulting TSO is expected to be used in the conceptual, preliminary and detailed design phases, and to be capable of producing the highest quality results while reducing design costs and times.

Research activities are focused on four main areas:

  • Turbine system benchmarking
  • Optimization of turbine-related disciplines
  • Multidisciplinary integration of the turbine
  • Multidisciplinary optimization of the turbine
