Abstract:

This technical report summarizes the RD effort for the Phase II STTR program titled High-Temperature, High-Bandwidth Fiber Optic Pressure and Temperature Sensors for Gas Turbine Applications. Luna Innovations and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Virginia Tech or VT have teamed together for this effort. This research program has developed accurate and reliable pressure and temperature instrumentation that can operate within extremely high-temperature combusting flows. The sensors developed during this project has been tested in a gas turbine engine measuring the pressure differentials that occur as the turbine blades rotate during operation.
