Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT12
Budget: 09/24/15 - 09/24/17

ABSTRACT: The U. S. Air Force needs turbulent combustion models that can be used to simulate combustion in actual propulsion systems at both design and off-design conditions, not models that are only useful for highly idealized problems. With this motivation in mind, Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. and the Computational Combustion Lab at ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-062
Budget: 09/01/15 - 06/01/16

ABSTRACT:Afterburners operate under a wide range of operating conditions and hence they are likely to encounter conditions at which combustion (thermoacoustic) instabilities occur. Therefore, methods to mitigate rumble and screech, usually classified as either active or passive control, are of clear interest. CSE, Inc. proposes to develop a str...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Notre Dame

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT19
Budget: 07/23/15 - 04/25/16

ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hype...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Pennsylvania State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT21
Budget: 07/21/15 - 04/26/16

ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. ?High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. ?M...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-181
Budget: 07/17/15 - 07/16/17

ABSTRACT:The pressure oscillations associated with thermoacoustic combustion instabilities are a serious hazard to combustion systems such as gas-turbine-engine combustors, augmentors / afterburners, ramjets, and rocket engines. Unfortunately, combustion engineers currently face a dilemma when trying to estimate these potentially destructive phe...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-161
Budget: 10/06/14 - 12/31/16

ABSTRACT: In recent years, diversification of energy dependence on foreign oil has attracted the use of alternative fuels such as the Fischer-Tropsch jet fuels and hydro-treated renewable jet fuels. However, there are combustion stability issues with alternative fuels in the aircraft engines including augmentors. In addition, the U.S. military...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT12
Budget: 05/15/14 - 10/30/14

ABSTRACT: Ramjets and scramjets are the preferred propulsion platforms for flight in the supersonic (3

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Purdue University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT04
Budget: 02/20/14 - 11/21/14

ABSTRACT: The ability of plasmas to modify combustion has been known for more than 50 years. Recent advances in plasma generation technology and measurement diagnostics have led to extensive efforts to understand both the kinetics of the plasma-flame interaction and the enhancement of combustion properties such as ignition, extinction, flame sp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-181
Budget: 05/14/13 - 02/13/14

ABSTRACT: Combustion instabilities can be a serious problem in combustion devices including augmentors/afterburners. Their prediction is very challenging due to nonlinear interactions between various complex phenomena, including acoustics, combustion, and turbulence. The goal of this project is to provide a framework that will allow the develo...
