Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to take part in the next conference hosted by the community of engineers working in the study and use of wet steam in turbomachines.



27 – 28 JUNE 2022
St. Petersburg, Russia

Information about the conference

The third international Bauman conference on the problems of wet steam, dedicated to the 95th anniversary of JSC NPO CKTI and the 110th anniversary of the Baumann rule.

The first conference was successfully held in 2012 in Cambridge (UK), the second conference was held in 2016 in Prague (Czech Republic).

The Third Conference changed its address and because of the pandemic it will take place not in Shanghai (China), but in St. Petersburg (Russia).

The purpose of the conference is to present and discuss the latest advances in the study of wet steam flows in turbomachines by calculation and experimental methods and in the design of turbines operating on wet steam. As an experiment, reflecting new directions in the development of turbomachines, the topic of the study of alternative working bodies is included among the topics.

The conference will be organized in compliance with all necessary measures of COVID-19 prevention.


Conference topics:

  • Calculation methods and mathematical models of the formation and flow of moister in the flow path of a steam turbine, calculation of the influence of wetness (Chairman of the section Vladimir Gribin, Doctor of Science, Prof.)
  • Moisture measurement methods, methods and tools for experimental research of moisture. Analysis of the results of experiments to determine the effect of wet steam on efficiency and reliability (Chairman of the section Valery Rokhlin, PhD)
  • Structural, schematic and operational solutions to reduce the effect of moisture in steam turbines, blade erosion (Chairman of the section Alexander Ivanovskiy, PhD)
  • Alternative working fluids for turbines, their research and application, comparison with the steam cycle when working in the near-humid and near-critical regions of the state (Chairman of the section – Dr.Sebastian Schuster)
