Gas Turbine Engines

High efficiency, power density and scalability make gas turbine engines a prime choice for continuous high power applications such as commercial plane engines and ground based power generation. During his time in the aerospace industry, Dr. Micklow has made major contributions to the development and design of various turbine components, such as compressor design and the development of the Rich-Burn/Quick-Quench/Lean-Burn combustor implemented in nearly every modern gas turbine. Along with FCARs partnership with Larsen Motorsports, FCAR thus has both the theoretical knowledge and practical implementation expertise required to provide cutting-edge and innovative solutions in the analysis and optimization of gas turbine engines.
