Success Stories | ANL and RTRC Gas Turbines Slide Image

Argonne National Laboratory and Raytheon Technologies Research Center partnered through HPC4Mfg to develop data-driven approaches for optimizing gas turbine film-cooling designs while reducing turbine cooling air—thereby improving engine efficiency without sacrificing component durability.


iconIncreasing component life span, minimizes maintenance and operating costs.
iconUsing Argonne's HPC capabilities to enable fast, accurate modeling of gas-turbine film cooling systems.
iconExploits AI and digital twins to design efficient technology in energy and aviation industries.
iconA 10% reduction in the high-pressure turbine cooling air can lead up to 1% reduction in thrust-specific fuel consumption of the gas turbine engine.
iconIncreases engine efficiencies, lowering fuel consumption.
