Problem[edit]

Jet engines, airplanes, helicopters, car racing enthusiasts, wind generation, electricity generation, turbo chargers, vacuum cleaners, air compressors, and wind mills all involve turbines. Yet few know anything about them. A theory of operation; small, safe, models; and mechanism for testing them (video) is needed.

Conceive[edit]

  • Demonstrate how turbines of various sorts work and where they are used. Inspiring video.
  • Develop compressed air driven models of various turbine engines.

Design[edit]

Start with a jet-engine model found on Thingiverse.

Implement[edit]

Operate[edit]

Demo[edit]

Next Steps[edit]

  • develop theory of operation of helicopter engine by adding titles to the old helicopter turbine project
  • review cabin fever implementation
  • add clear shroud and compressed air to turbine and troubleshoot
  • design helicopter instead of jet turbine
