After a long and grueling two month experimental campaign at GE Global Research Center, Mitchell and Tim have returned relatively unscathed and with a mass of data. Time to get processing!
Askar and Ben completed their MASc degrees in September. Ben is off to Montreal to work for Pratt & Whitney on turbomachinery aerodynamics, while Askar is joining me in Atlanta to pursue a PhD.
Qiang just published his second Combustion and Flame paper on the dynamics of swirl flames. Another great contribution!
Another Combustion Symposium has come and gone… great time in Dublin. Two papers are now published in the Proceedings of the Combustion Institute (see below).
Prof. Steinberg also presented a review of highly turbulent combustion at a joint TNF/PTF session. The slides are available here: PTF_TNF_2018_master_reduce.
Penelope and Ben presented their papers at ASME Turbo Expo in Oslo this July! Both papers were accepted for journal publication and are available here:
Askar, Chris, and Qiang presented papers at the AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum in Cincinnati this July.
Tim Wabel’s Paper “Assessment of chemical scalars for heat release rate measurement in highly turbulent premixed combustion including experimental factors” was published in Combustion and Flame! The paper uses DNS to assess how well we can measure critical properties of turbulent flames.
