Keishi Kumashiro’s new paper analyzes the error sources in fluid velocimetry based on optical flow.
Dr. Vedanth Nair has joined the group as a Research Engineer II. Dr. Nair will be working on TDLAS tomography, combustor noise, supercritical fluid dynamics, course development, and many more things!
Ever wonder how kinetic energy moves between scales of motion in flames? It turns out the flame makes a big difference!
Want to see some fun an interesting things that happen in a real jet engine combustor? See Mitchell’s PROCI paper: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.proci.2020.06.177
Proceedings of the Combustion Institute papers are starting to appear… here is Askar’s awesome paper on vorticity transport in swirl flames: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.proci.2020.06.211
We also contributed to this paper in collaboration with McGill, UConn, and Siemens: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.proci.2020.06.009
Welcome to our newest graduate student, Sam Wonfor, who joined us from Purdue to work on novel combustors for supersonic civil transport!
Also welcome to our new team of undergraduate researchers for Fall 2020… Shrey Jain, Cathy Liu, Dillon Smith, and Rachel Thomas.
Congratulations to Chris and Penelope for their papers published in AIAA’s Journal of Propulsion and Power!
https://arc.aiaa.org/doi/full/10.2514/1.B37713 – What happens when you put a lot of swirl flames beside each other?
https://arc.aiaa.org/doi/full/10.2514/1.B37815 – Flashback doesn’t just suddenly happen you know… there is a process!
Congratulations to Askar and Mitchell for having their papers accepted to the Proceedings of the Combustion Institute… don’t get a sunburn presenting the papers in Australia this January!
Mitchell’s paper from the AIAA Propulsion & Energy Forum was selected as the best paper in Propellants and Combustion for 2019! Congrats to Mitchell!
It is with great sadness that we report the excellent news that Prof. Sam Grauer will join the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Penn State in January 2021 as an Assistant Professor. Great work Sam!
