Background

Mechanical Engineering degree (Dipl.-Ing.) at University of Technology Dresden, Germany

Current Research

Developing multi-sector isothermal water flow test facility for conducting modern laser-optical fluid flow measurements (e.g. PIV) of next generation gas turbine fuel injectors. Analyse impact of realistic boundary conditions on flow fields from fuel injectors, i.e. understand general impacts of improved flow fidelity when moving from single to multi-sector configurations. Determine aerodynamic coupling mechanisms between sectors at high spatial and temporal resolution.
