Graduate student Sean Powers, Research Scientist Gwi Bo Byun and a team at Virginia Tech’s TurboLab have designed and built a custom inlet (air intake) to be mounted onto the front of a Honeywell TFE-731-2 turbofan engine. Additionally, they are developing laser-based diagnostics that can be a non-intrusive way to measure the same things that the intrusive probes are measuring, such as temperature and sound levels.
