Paper Abstract

There is considerable demand in the field of turbomachinery research to make in-situ measurements of temperature, heat flux, and pressure in large-scale flow rigs. This is driven by the desire to increase engine efficiency and reliability by improving our understanding of the flow regimes within compressors and turbines.
