Travel Award 2017
We are pleased to announce that the IJTPP Student Travel Award 2017 has been awarded to Mr. Bogdan C. Cernat.
Mr. Cernat graduated in Mechanical Engineering form the Università Politecnica delle Marche in 2014 and he is currently pursuing a PhD at the Turbomachinery and Propulsion Department of the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics and the Université Catholique de Louvain. His research is dedicated to the aerothermal characterization of unsteady flows in HP turbine stages for aeroengine applications with the purpose of providing high-resolution, time-resolved measurements on the overtip flow field associated with optimized blade geometries. On behalf of IJTPP, he will be awarded 500 Swiss francs to attend the ASME Turbo Expo 2018, which will be held in Lillestrøm (Norway) between the 11th and the 15th of June 2018. There he will present a detailed description of the experimental work carried out for the timeresolved representation of the unsteady pressure field at the HP rotor casing.
