Rolls-Royce and the state are chipping in to expand Purdue University’s work on making small gas-powered turbine engines more efficient.
The company already opened one big facility at Purdue this year. Now, it’s investing another $10 million into two new wind tunnels at Purdue’s turbine research lab.
Mechanical engineering professor Guillermo Paniagua leads the research there. He explains what gas turbine engines do.
