About the Project

Thermoacoustic instability is an unresolved problem in combustion devices such as gas turbine and jet engine. When the acoustic pressure is coupled with the heat release fluctuation, very strong oscillation may occur, which may even damage the hardware component to cause high losses. In this project the interaction of flame and acoustic wave will be investigated in a laboratory burner using advanced diagnostic tools. Based on the understanding gained, active control of flame dynamics will be attempted.
