Gas Turbine Award

Gas Turbine Award

The Gas Turbine Award is given in recognition of an outstanding individual--or multiple--author contribution to the literature of combustion gas turbines or gas turbines thermally combined with nuclear or steam power plants. The paper may be devoted to design aspects or overall gas turbines or individual components and/or systems such as compressors, combustion systems, turbines, controls and accessories, bearings, regenerators, inlet air filters, silencers, etc. It may cover topics specifically related to gas turbines such as high temperature materials or fuel considerations, including erosion and corrosion complications. It can also be devoted to application or operational aspects of gas turbines for aircraft propulsion and ground power units, or automotive, electric utility, gas pipeline pumping, locomotive, marine, oil field pumping, petrochemical, space power, steel, and similar uses. Papers published anywhere in the world are eligible.

The Gas Turbine Division (now International Gas Turbine Institute) established the award in 1963.
