Industrial Contact

At Virginia Tech, direct industrial interaction has been somewhat limited during this reporting period with the industrial partners, which include Pratt & Whitney, GE and RollsRoyce. Most of the interaction that has taken place during this reporting period has been with regards to questions that needed to be addressed for the endwall film-cooling hole configuration. At the University of Texas, direct industrial interaction has taken place in several modes. In early February Pratt & Whitney visited the University of Texas to discuss their current contract as well as the DOE work. Details of the effects of surface roughness on film cooling performance were also discussed.
