'The objective of this proposal is to create long-term collaboration between industry and academia within Europe in critical areas of science and technology to develop clean and efficient combustion in aeroengines. Specific goals of the partnership are: • To create a network of highly trained scientists and engineers in a key area of gas turbine combustion research, with both industrial experience and trained in state-of-the-art scientific methods and innovative technologies. • To spark future research initiatives via the interaction of researchers involved in the project with industry as well as other existing networks. • To advance the state of the art in understanding the effects of mixture stratification on emissions and combustion instabilities. The proposal involves two academic (Cambridge University, UK, and Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Germany) and three industrial partners (Rolls-Royce, UK, Rolls-Royce,Germany, and Camcon, UK). The project will combine the experimental and numerical expertise of all partners to investigate new concepts in turbulent stratified combustion. The results will be immediately used in industry via incorporation into CFD codes and concept development. The project will also significantly benefit Cancom by employing its fast acting valve technology and further developing it for use in a new application.'
Gas turbine manufacturers want to produce high-performance engines with low pollutant emissions. An academia - industry partnership advanced understanding of an integral component of such aero-engines.
Combustion systems exploiting stratified flames are stable with low pollution and are excellent candidates for aero-engines. However, greater understanding of the effects of mixture stratification on emissions and combustion instabilities is required.
The scientific network of academia and industry partners established with funding of the project IAPP-STRATEGI investigated related topics both experimentally and theoretically.
Studies of the detailed structure of turbulent stratified flames produced data needed for validation of turbulent combustion models. Fellows also studied the response of flames to acoustic perturbation experimentally and theoretically. Given the sound waves associated with aero-engine function, such studies provided important information on stratified flame behaviour under operating conditions. Finally, laser and imaging techniques have been used to obtain high-resolution fuel velocity measurements when ejected from industrial spray nozzles.
The IAPP-STRATEGI network has enhanced EU capabilities in aero-engine design, advanced the careers of promising scientists and led to new project collaborations regarding related issues. The EU investment in the project proposal will thus have continued and lasting impact.
