About the Turbomachinery Laboratory
The Turbomachinery Laboratory conducts basic and applied research into important problems of reliability and performance of turbomachinery — rotating machinery that extracts or adds energy to fluids. That’s everything from classic Dutch windmills to the space shuttle’s main engine turbopumps and compressors that move natural gas through the distribution system.
We offer graduate engineering education through Texas A&M’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
The Turbomachinery Laboratory provides continuing education opportunities to users of industrial turbomachinery and pumping systems at the annual International Pump Users Symposium and Turbomachinery Symposium.
We also offer a number of intensive Short Courses throughout the year on varying topics relevant to today’s professionals in the turbomachinery and pumping industries.
We draw on the world-renowned research expertise of Texas A&M University College of Engineering and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station.
Through these activities, the Turbomachinery Laboratory continues Texas A&M’s land-grant charter tradition of education, research and service.
