Illustrations of our experience and know-how

A major original equipment manufacturing client wanted to reduce costs and improve the performance of a gas turbine engine by modifying the turbine design. CPS was asked to provide a concept that would meet the cost, performance and life requirements of the client:

  • CPS proposed a re-design of the first stage vane to lower the manufacturing cost of the turbine and to reduce the amount of cooling air for improved engine performance.
  • Based on the extensive experience in mechanical design and integrity as well as cooling and heat transfer CPS could present a design suitable for an implementation into the engine.
  • The vane re-design was created with the aid of advanced engineering analysis tools such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and 3D Finite Element Modeling (FEM).
