Detailed description

Project summary

The excessive pollution produced by the aircraft engines has to be drastically reduced due to new regulations concerning environment protection. To coupe with NOx emissions reduction the future turboreactor engines will be characterized by lean premixed flames (increase of the air/fuel ratio). This improvement leads, among others, closer to the flame blowout limit, which means reduction of the burning temperature. In these conditions the pollutant emissions are decreased but appear thermoacoustic instabilities. The acoustic resonance induced by flame fluctuations can generate big pressure oscillations inside combustion chamber. These thermoacoustic instabilities can produce, among growth of the acoustic emissions, even deterioration of the mechanical properties of the structure.

General Objectives

a) Development of new techniques and technologies for thermoacoustic instabilities mechanisms observed inside the combustion chamber of the aircraft engines ;
b) The proposition of new type of system that can control actively the suppression of these instabilities for a wide range of operation conditions .

Specific objectives and estimated results
a) Construction of a combustion chamber model for experimental tests;
b) Dominant frequencies identification at the inlet of the combustion chamber;
c) Comparison between experimental and numerical results;
d) Interpretation of the obtained results and identification of the instabilities mechanisms;
e) Active control system proposal for instabilities suppression.

The novelty of this project are the usage of high performance computing programs and modern technologies of active control of flame stability in low premixed combustion.
