Skip to content. The onset of combustion instabilities CIs has hindered the development and performance of combustion systems employed in industrial, power generation and propulsion systems for many decades. In an effort to solve this problem, many investigations to date sought to elucidate the feedback mechanism that drives these CI. Ideally, the experimental setup used in such studies should simulate the operating conditions e. However, investigating CI in the full-scale engine tests is not practical because of the exorbitant costs of such tests, and the inability to equip full-scale engines with diagnostic systems that could measure, e.
An investigation of the effect of a tangential gas velocity on combustion instability.

Norbert Peters. He then served as a postdoctoral fellow before he became a research scientist in at the Combustion Research Facility of Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. Dahms has expertise in the theory, simulation, analysis, and modeling of high-pressure reacting fluid flows that are dominated by multiphase phenomena, complex multicomponent mixtures, real-fluid transport and thermodynamics, turbulence, and their multi-scale interactions with elementary kinetics. His research focuses on the opportunities of mesoscale sciences for the development of theoretical-numerical models which seamlessly combine the governing dynamics at molecular and continuum scales. Dahms developed a conceptual model for auto-ignition in high-pressure spray flames.
