    The Book

    Propulsion and Power is the book in which all the main GasTurb features and accompanying methods are described. The book was written by the original GasTurb author Joachim Kurzke, in cooperation with Ian Halliwell. The book is also an aid to understanding the application of GasTurb for specific performance tasks. See more ...


    GasTurb GmbH offers extensive training courses to customers interested in being given an introduction to how the programs work.

    These services are offered in many different countries. Please contact us for more information.


    Modeling existing engines based on a limited amount of information can be a challenging and time-consuming task. Sometimes the feature which would solve a customer’s special simulation task most easily is not always obvious. In this case, the consultation services provided by the GasTurb GmbH may be helpful.

    Consultation services and seminars are also offered by our external consultants. We offer seminars dealing with gas turbine performance in general and how to solve performance problems with GasTurb and the accompanying software Smooth C, Smooth T and GasTurb Details.

    An example of a seminar plan is shown on the right.

    If you would like to hear about a special topic, please specify what you are interested in - we will do our best.

    Furthermore, the consultants Joachim Kurzke and Robert Hill independently offer training, seminars and consulting. More information about their services can be found here:
