Gas dynamics of combustion

The second far-ranging scope of work relates to the dynamics of combustion processes. Of particular interest in this context are:

- Numerical methods for the tracking of flamefronts and for the modeling of processes occuring inside a flamefront

- Thermoacoustic resonances of burner systems

Modern low-emission stationary gas​tur​bines as they are used, e.g., in air​planes and industrial com​plexes, incline to fluctua​ting heat release and hence to a strong gene​ration of noice. If the gene​rated sound----inter​acts with reso​nant acoustic modes of the com​bustion chamber----- the so gene​rated sound with the fuel chamber in reso​nance, it can come to the reso​nance​ kata​stanza what entails huge mate​rial charges. Around this effect as for example Helmholtz-​Resonatoren, are often used in practice.

- Adoption of numerical analyses in fire prevention

Only experts are generally aware of the dangers of smoke deve​loping inside of buildings in case of room fires. Even relatively small fires can produce large amounts of very toxic fire smoke. Hence, uncon​trolled smoke disper​sion in buildings very quickly leads to dange​rous situations. The majority of fire-induced casual​ties arises because of flue gas poisoning. We suffocate before we burn.
