A radial turbine

EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from French turbine, from Latin turbo, turbinem (circular movement, top, reel, spindle)

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈtɜ(ɹ)baɪn/, /ˈtɜ(ɹ)bɪn/
  • (file)

NounEdit

turbine (plural turbines)

  1. Any of various rotary machines that use the kinetic energy of a continuous stream of fluid (a liquid or a gas) to turn a shaft.
    • 2013 July-August, Lee S. Langston, “The Adaptable Gas Turbine”, in American Scientist:
      Turbines have been around for a long time—windmills and water wheels are early examples. The name comes from the Latin turbo, meaning vortex, and thus the defining property of a turbine is that a fluid or gas turns the blades of a rotor, which is attached to a shaft that can perform useful work.
