Anybody who is anybody in the business of turbomachinery reliability will be a member of the consortium. We take a lot of pride in industrial research at the laboratory. When industry comes to us, it is because they needed work done yesterday. They cannot wait. All of our students and faculty are trained in projects that deliver for our members.
