Current Research

  • Aerodynamic optimisation of Multi-passage Swirling Flows for Gas Turbine Fuel Injectors
  • CFD simulation of flows in progressively more detailed injector geometries for the identification of key factors determining the generation of observed flow features
  • Generation of a methodology for the design of an aerodynamically optimised lean burn gas turbine fuel injector.
