Will demonstrate more than 50 years of expertise in turbomachinery for propulsion applications including advanced work for air breathing engines and rocket turbopumps for NASA, the US Military, and others
White River Junction, VT. – July 15, 2010 – Concepts NREC (CN), a world leader in turbomachinery design, research, engineering, and manufacturing, will exhibit at the 46th AIAA/ASME/SAE/ASEE Joint Propulsion Conference and Exhibit (JPC) July 25 to 28 in Booth 118 at the Nashville Convention Center & Renaissance Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. Concepts NREC engineers will demonstrate technology that underscores the company’s over 50 years of experience working on turbomachinery for aerospace propulsion, including advanced technology work for NASA to reduce the required propellant tank pressures and increase the stability of rocket turbopumps. Turbomachinery engineers, designers, manufacturers, and students focused on propulsion technology will benefit from CN’s demonstrations.
“CN capability that is unmatched by any other independent turbomachinery company. Come and see what turbomachinery solutions we can provide for your aerospace propulsion needs,” says Kerry Oliphant, aerospace program manager for Concepts NREC.
At the AIAA JPC, CN will exhibit examples of high performance aerospace propulsion turbomachinery and technology:
1) A compressor and turbine designed by CN for a small turbojet (30 to 100 lb thrust) for missile applications
2) Compact diffuser technology for low weight and low frontal area requirements in aerospace propulsion
3) High efficiency supersonic mixed-flow impeller designed for unmanned propulsion applications
4) High Suction Specific Speed (NSS) inducer for extremely low tank pressure rocket turbopumps
5) A new test facility at CN to measure a cavitating inducer’s transfer functions that are critical information for accurate liquid propulsion launch vehicle stability analysis
CN’s Agile Engineering Design System® (Agile) turbomachinery software is used by engineers, designers, and product manufacturers. Software demonstrations also will be given in CN’s booth number 118 during the exhibition.
CN’s participation at the AIAA JPC is part of an expanding program of activities that the company has rolled out this year to support the growing success of its turbomachinery software, services, and education.
