Technische Universität Braunschweig (TUBS) is Germany's oldest university of technology, with about 3,600 employees and more than 13,000 students. A strong research and education profile is present in engineering sciences, especially in aerospace. Two institutes are involved in this project: Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Pfleiderer-Institute of Fluid Machinery. Their research mission is to develop new methods and scientific knowledge in aerodynamics and turbomachinery. The institutes operate several wind tunnels and compressor test rigs, together with modern measurement equipment.
TUBS is involved in the development and experimental investigations of advanced shrouds for compressor stators.
