Design and observe the behavior of turbine engines in a virtual environment. Monitor the authentically recreated work processes, adjust them to optimize the output, view the resulting readings, etc. Customize the templates to model a new engine design and test its functionality.
GasTurb simulates the most important gas turbine configurations used for propulsion or for power generation. Virtually all gas turbine performance simulation problems can be solved with GasTurb, for example: use the program for teaching gas turbine thermodynamics. Employ instead of inaccurate sketches exact enthalpy-entropy diagrams that are to scale, for example. The graphical output of parametric studies can show true numbers about how the thermal efficiency depends on pressure ratio and burner exit temperature. The assumption of the constant isentropic exponent is not necessary - with GasTurb it is no burden working always with the true gas properties. Thus not only the tendencies shown in the lessons are correct, even the absolute numbers are valid.
