Turbine 2.3.2 is the version you should use when either migrating from an older version of Turbine or starting a project based on a release version of the Turbine framework.
While Turbine 2.4 is the shape of things to come, it is currently in a state of flux and for now we recommend that you stick with the 2.3.x release series.
Turbine 2.4 uses next generation technologies like an Avalon-based container and decoupled components from the Fulcrum sub-project of Turbine (most of benefits of these enhancements will be realized in the forthcoming 2.3.3 release).

  turbine - Encyclopedia.com
At the inlet end of the turbine high-pressure steam enters from a boiler and moves through the turbine parallel to the shaft, first striking a row of stationary vanes that directs the steam against the first bladed disk at an optimum speed and angle.
The term gas turbine is usually applied to a unit whose essential components are a compressor, a combustion chamber, and a turbine that resembles a steam turbine.
The turbine drives the compressor, which feeds high-pressure air into the combustion chamber; there it is mixed with a fuel and burned, providing high-pressure gases to drive the turbine, the gases expanding until their pressure drops to atmospheric pressure.

  Turbine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A turbine operating in reverse is called a compressor or turbopump.
Wind turbines use a foil to generate lift from the moving fluid and impart it to the rotor (this is a form of reaction), they also gain some energy from the impulse of the wind, by deflecting it at an angle.
Gas turbines with multiple stages have the first stage reacting to impulse of the gas flow (because it is inefficient to increase the velocity when it is almost at the speed of sound) and later stages being designed for reaction in the decreasing velocity flow.

 Tesla turbine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is referred to as a bladeless turbine because it uses the boundary layer effect and not a fluid impinging upon the blades as in a conventional turbine.
Minor departures from the turbine, as may be dictated by the circumstances in each case, will obviously suggest themselves but if it is carried out on these general lines it will be found highly profitable to the owners of the steam plant while permitting the use of their old installation.
The efficiency of a conventional turbine is related to the difference in temperature between the intake and the exhaust.

 PowerLabs Turbine!
Turbine combustion chambers are very intricate designs which involve a deep knowledge of thermodynamics, flame and combustion dynamics, heat transfer, materials science and fuel chemistry.
In order for the turbine to be safely operated a few key parameters must not be exceeded: due to the self-sustaining nature of induction fed engines, a turbine is perfectly capable of spinning itself to complete destruction when fed enough fuel.
Turbine tests with nozzle and afterburner: We have welded a 5.5" diameter x 8 inch long pipe with a 3" diameter outlet at the end to serve as a nozzle.

 Gas turbine
Although the gas turbine must be started by some external means (a small external motor or other source, such as another gas turbine), it can be brought up to full-load (peak output) conditions in minutes as contrasted to a steam turbine plant whose start up time is measured in hours.
The gas turbine exhaust is then used to produce steam in a heat exchanger (called a heat recovery steam generator) to supply a steam turbine whose output provides the means to generate more electricity.
3): the compressor, the combustor and the turbine.

 Combustion Turbine
A gas turbine has a compressor to draw in and compress air; a combustor (or burner) to add fuel to heat the compressed air; and a turbine to extract power from the hot air flow.
If a gas turbine has a high pressure and a low pressure turbine at the back end of the machine, a reheater (usually another combustor) can be used to "reheat" the flow between the two turbines.
Turbine efficiency and total capacity is highly variable with the inlet air temperature (ambient air temperature if no inlet air cooling is utilized) and local altitude/atmospheric conditions.

 Power Turbine Thermodynamics
The temperature ratio across the turbine is related to the pressure ratio by the isentropic flow equations.
From the conservation of energy, the turbine work per mass of airflow (TW) is equal to the change in the specific enthalpy ht of the flow from the entrance to the exit of the turbine.
Turbine blades must, therefore, be made of special materials that can withstand the heat, or they must be actively cooled.

 Turbine Transition Training into Turbine Powered Helicopters
Turbine Transition Training is offered in house more frequently today by operators than it once was however some operators still refuse to hire a pilot whom does not have at least minimal turbine experience.
Turbine engines are less forgiving to pilot mistakes than a piston engine is, that is why most operators will not hire a pilot without at least some turbine experience.
When flying turbine powered helicopters it is imperative to understand that especially during the initial pick-up to a hover, and the initial departure from a hover, there are three (3) critical instruments that must be observed especially in hot climates or conditions.

 Turbo Types
The gas, which is restricted by the turbine's flow cross-sectional area, results in a pressure and temperature drop between the inlet and outlet.
In the volute of such radial or centripetal turbines, exhaust gas pressure is converted into kinetic energy and the exhaust gas at the wheel circumference is directed at constant velocity to the turbine wheel.
The turbine's characteristic behaviors is determined by the specific flow cross-section, the throat cross-section, in the transition area of the inlet channel to the volute.

 What do I need to know to purchase a residential wind turbine?
A wind turbine, which is installed on top of a tall tower, collects kinetic energy from the wind and converts it to electricity that is compatible with a home's electrical system.
Depending upon the average wind speed in the area, a wind turbine rated in the range of 5 to 15 kilowatts would be required to make a significant contribution to meet this demand.
Residential wind turbines have been installed in at least 47 of the 50 states, but the majority of the units have been installed in the Northeast and the Midwest.

 Power Turbine
Since the turbine extracts energy from the flow, the pressure decreases across the turbine.
The tips of turbine blades are often connected by a thin metal band to keep the flow from leaking, as shown in the picture at the upper left.
Turbine blades must be made of special materials that can withstand the heat, or they must be actively cooled.

 Chrysler turbine engines and cars
The first turbine engine had an acceleration lag of seven seconds from idle to full-rate output; the second engine required three seconds to achieve maximum vehicle acceleration, while this new engine required less than one and one-half seconds to accomplish the same performance.
To qualify initially as a turbine prospect, a candidate must own a car (or, be a member of a household in which a car is owned by the head of the household) and must have a valid driver's license.
Although the progress of the gas turbine and its advantages are impressive, additional progress in improved component efficiencies (particularly in the compressor) and the future possibility inherent in increased operating temperatures, are extremely promising.

 The Future of Things (TFOT) - Engine on a Chip — the Dream of the Personal Turbine
In a gas turbine (also known as combustion-turbine), hot gases produced from the combustion of natural gas in a high-pressure combustion chamber are passed through the turbine, which spins the generator to produce electricity.
Gas turbines are commonly used to serve the peak loads of the electric utility and have grown in size and complexity over the years.
A gas turbine, both large and small consists of a compressor, a combustion chamber, and a turbine that is driven by the combustion exhaust and powers the compressor.
