The Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory (NDTL) is focused on research, testing, and workforce development for a wide range of applications that involve turbomachinery technology. The University of Notre Dame has recently completed construction of a new 25,000-square-foot facility in South Bend, Indiana, USA to enable significant expansion in test cell capability. These facilities will operate with shaft powers from 700 hp to 12,000 hp in a secured, export-controlled environment. Computational capabilities include a range of in-house and commercial software for structural and fluid-flow analysis along with a dedicated large-scale HPC cluster. These experimental and numerical capabilities provide opportunities to create a shorter development path for maturation of new gas-turbine engine technologies. The NDTL has significant and demonstrated experience with large-scale programs focused on rapid transition of low TRL technologies to production. NDTL currently employs 36 full-time employees and works with 10 Ph.D. candidates. The directors of the NDTL are seeking to form new relationships with government and industry in order to advance research, testing, and workforce development in turbomachinery.
