The reach of the Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M University has long been global. That impact was demonstrated earlier this month when the Turbo Lab hosted its second biennial Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) in Singapore.
The 2018 ATPS was held March 13-15, with short courses on March 12. Engineers and technicians, from novice to experienced, chose from a combination of seven short courses, 23 lectures, 16 tutorials, 12 discussion groups, 38 case studies and 11 technical briefs.
