Parsons 2019 - Call for Papers extended to 31 May

4 Dec 2018

The 2019 Parsons conference will focus on the challenge of turbines operating under novel conditions, looking the interactions between environmental degradation mechanisms and mechanical interactions, in both gas and steam turbine applications.

With respect to gas turbines for marine or aerospace propulsion, which have always had more aggressive thermal cycles, there is a continuous drive to increase efficiency and cut emissions to promote sustainable travel. 

Significant effort is therefore being made to understand how materials will respond to new combinations of stress and environment for existing technology and for new designs with unconventional aggressive environments from alternative combustion systems and fuels. 

Specific topics within the scope of the conference include design, materials performance, advanced and novel manufacturing methods, and operation of both steam and gas turbine power plant, together with issues related to increased operational and fuel flexibility and potential new power generation cycles.

Further details 

Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts of up to 300 words for consideration for the programme. The abstract must provide sufficient information for a fair assessment including the objective of the paper, the methodology used and the conclusions or results of the work. 

The deadline for submission for consideration for presentation has been extended to 31 May 2019. All papers and presentations will be in English and a condition of acceptance is that at least one author from each paper will pay to attend the conference and present the work.
