Description

A paper published in 1994 by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Written by A. J. Scalzo, R. L. Bannister, M. DeCorso, and G. S. Howard, this paper provides a concise compilation of the history of Westinghouse Electric's combustion turbine technology, from its origins in the early development of a U.S.-built aviation gas turbine for jet propulsion during World War II, through the early industrial applications starting in 1948, and continuing through decades of evolution of the heavy duty power generation machines up to and including the advanced 160MW W501F.
