User Manuals

Each GasTurb program comes with a freely available and comprehensive manual. The functions of each GasTurb program are described in detail and made easy to understand in the manuals. The manuals can be downloaded in the download section.


GasTurb makes simulation tasks easy. Newcomers to GasTurb are encouraged to view the three GasTurb Video Tutorials, that provide an introduction to Gasturb's user interface and its most frequently used features. There are many further tutorials available for download dealing with more advanced engine design tasks. Additionally, in a three part series the design and off-design calculation of hybrid-electric propulsion systems is explained. See more...


GasTurb GmbH offers extensive training courses to customers interested in being given an introduction to how the programs work.

These services are offered in many different countries. Please contact us for more information.


Modeling existing engines based on a limited amount of information can be a challenging and time-consuming task. Sometimes the feature which would solve a customer’s special simulation task most easily is not always obvious. In this case, the consultation services provided by the GasTurb GmbH may be helpful.

We offer seminars dealing with gas turbine performance in general and how to solve performance problems with GasTurb and the accompanying software Smooth C, Smooth T and GasTurb Details.

An example of a seminar plan is shown on the right.

Consultation services and seminars are also offered by our external consultant.

If you would like to hear about a special topic, please specify what you are interested in - we will do our best.

Please feel free to contact us for more information.
