Aero-Science May Help Trucking Industry
Aeronautical University is opening its Daytona doors to Turbine
Truck Engines, Inc. (TTE). The agreement gives TTE complete access
to its Gas Turbine Research Laboratory (GTRL) test facilities in
its Aerospace Engineering Department, which boasts state-of-the-art
turbine test equipment and duration test facilities.
ERAU is helping TTE commercialize a 540hp version of the
Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine Engine (DCGT) for driveshaft
applications. The testing is a necessary phase in the final
development of the DCGT as it approaches production phase.
According to TTE, the test will provide the company with the data
necessary for the engineered prototype for a production engine.
ERAU's GTRL has extensive expertise in gas turbine engines and
in modeling of complex geometries in Computer Aided Three
dimensional Interactive Application (CATIA) and external redesign,
according to TTL. The GTRL recently completed a 3D model of the
DCGT prototype and partially redesigned a potential 540hp version
in collaboration with TTE.
"We are very fortunate to have Embry-Riddle just down the street
in Daytona," said TTE Chairman and CEO Michael Rouse. "We have
developed a great relationship over the past couple of years with
the GTRL headed by Dr. Magdy Attia. He has been exemplary in their
cad designs. They have now offered us total access to their testing
facilities and personnel at cost; this was an unexpected surprise.
TTE will save time and countless thousands of dollars."
Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. is a technology company focused on
the development, manufacture and testing of its New Energy and
Environmental Efficient Truck Engine intended for mass market in
the United States and abroad.
