Abstract:
The Tesla turbine is an unconventional type of turbine, invented over 100 years ago by Nikola Tesla. Its rotor consists of several parallel circular disks with small gaps in between. At the outer circumference of the disks, nozzles feed a working fluid into the disk gaps, that travels on a spiral path radially inward to the outlet openings in the centre of the disks. The wall shear stress that the fluid exerts on the disks in circumferential direction drives the rotor. So far, Tesla turbines are...    »
