Hot-Annular Nozzle Cascade (HANC)

The Hot-Annular Nozzle Cascade (HANC), located on the Notre Dame campus, is a closed-loop tunnel for investigation of aero and thermal performance of turbine nozzles.

Core temperatures of up to 700° F in combination with secondary and cooling flows provides for engine-relevant turbine-inlet temperature distributions, and vane cooling density ratios.
