PropComb Variable Mach and Reynolds number continuous cascade wind tunnel for low
pressure turbine airfoils. Test section cross-section: 225 mm x 650 mm. Aerothermal
performance determination (possibly time-resolved). Low pressure turbine
aero-engine similarity conditions (low – cruise – Reynolds number, high subsonic
Mach number). Periodic inlet wake simulation.
