Dear Colleagues,


I kindly 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.

The third international conference, organized by JSC «NPO CKTI», is held in the year of the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the Central Boiler Turbine Institute (CKTI) and the 110th anniversary of the publication of the Bauman formula.

Vladimir Mikhailov

Chairman of the Conference,
General Director of NPO CKTI


The first conference organized by John Young and Alexander White 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 held in compliance with all epidemiological safety measures.
