Behind-the-scenes @ Turbo Group at Imperial

Turbo Group

Exclusively for Members and their guests

The Turbo Group at Imperial heralds world class expertise in turbocharging and exhaust gas energy recovery, supported by unique test facilities, which can help turbochargers run as efficiently as possible.


The host for the visit was the leader of the Turbo Group, Professor Ricardo Martinez-Botas - Professor of Turbomachinery, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Imperial College London.


Professor Martinez-Botas introduced Friends to the brand-new unique test facilities being used by the Turbo Group to drive improvements to turbo charged engines and their exhaust gas energy recovery systems. Research includes the design, development and testing of novel turbocharging concepts; steady and unsteady turbo machinery; and the measurement of transient-pulsating flows in high performance engine air systems.

This Members-exclusive visit consisted of a welcome and introduction by the host, tours to various aspects of research and lots of opportunity for Q&A.
