Engineering for gas turbine engines


  • Design of turbine engine and compressor control systems for ground or aviation applications
  • Design of DAQ (data acquisition) systems and instrumentation systems
  • Modelling and simulation of dynamic systems for turbomachinery
  • Modelling and simulation of mechanical hydraulic and electro-hydraulic systems
  • Middle-sized volume data measuring, recording and analysing
  • Development work for APUs (Auxiliary Power Units) (e.g. hybrid aircraft)
  • Design of special test rigs a for aero gas turbines and their systems
  • Design engineering for gas turbine modules and systems
  • General design engineering work for turbomachinery
  • Reliability analysis of aviation systems and their parts
  • Reliability database server ( designed to collect and evaluate aircraft´s design (developed within the framework of the project FTTA/ 026)



  • CAA approved gas turbine experimental laboratory for  up to about 1MW (originally designed for RD-45F engine installation, thrust 26,5 kN)
  • Complex DAQ systems for high speed and high accurate data acquisition based upon NI and Dewetron devices
  • Software  for systems simulations and modelling using SW MATLAB-Simulink, Control system toolbox, Aerospace toolbox, etc.
  • FEM  simulations in ANSYS, Nastran and Abaqus
  • Dewesoft – fast DAQ and real time analysis, FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analysis
  • CAD systems Autodesk Inventor, Catia BlockSim 7 – program environment for reliabilty analyses of RBD, FTA, RPD type
