Prototype of a rotor shaft from one of Ellings designs in 1925
The GIVEN consortium participated in the world’s largest annual turbomachinery conference with the contribution „Adjoint Method to Calculate Shape Gradients of Failure Probabilaties for Turbomachinery Components“ (see publications).
This year’s TurboExpo organized by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is held in Lillestrøm, where the Norwegian inventor Aegidius Elling constructed the first gas turbine in 1903. The photograph shows a prototype of a rotor shaft from one of Ellings designs in 1925 with a one stage axial compressor and a one stage turbine presented at the TurboExpo. In the background Ellings lab log in blue color.
3 000 participants of the Turbo Expo attend to more than 1 000 technical presentations, panel sessions and discussions between industry decision makers.
