    Strathclyde-Led LITECS Program Takes Aim at Gas Turbine Engine Emissions

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    The University of Strathclyde announced it is heading an £8 million research program to reduce the environmental impact of power-generating gas turbine engines (GTEs), such as those used in aviation. The Laser Imaging of Turbine Engine Combustion Species (LITECS) program will deliver transformational combustion measurement and modeling tools, enabling low-emission designs and low-emission fuel evaluations.

    The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation, is pairing with industry to fund the consortium, which consists additionally of the universities of Edinburgh, Manchester, Southampton, Loughborough, and Sheffield. It builds on a previous £2.8 million program that used laser…
