ABSTRACT The goal of experiment number one “Impulse Turbine” was to test and evaluate the performance of an impulse turbine F800 made by P.A Hilton. The performance evaluation was performed by mathematically calculating the shaft horsepower and torque from data taken during the experiment, at different pressures and shaft speeds. In order to find the turbine efficiency, thermodynamic principles had to be used. One of the principles used was the first law of thermodynamics. Using this law the team was able to conclude that the torque of the turbine decreased as the shaft velocity increased, and at the same time the shaft power output augmented. The change in temperature between the inlet and exhaust air of the turbine was different due to change in enthalpies. Heat loss during the process

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
