For this week seminar, we will have Dr, Sae Miller talking about "Research Overview & Thermo–Acoustic Combustion Instability"
This presentation contains two parts. The first includes an overview of the PI’s research program, students, and teaching. The second discusses combustion instability, which causes rocket and jet engine failure. We will examine important equations for combustion instability and combustion acoustics.
A new theory will be presented that is more general and recovers these traditional approaches. New terms are found that must be accounted for in thermo-acoustic instability analysis. The approach will be discussed in terms of aircraft engine augmenters (afterburners).
