Development and application of CFD methods for flows within modern gas turbines. In particular this includes modelling reacting flows, such as combustion, and multiphase flows such as the fuel spray within the combustor or ingestion of particles, such as ice or sand, into the engine. CFD simulations of  the effect of acoustic pressure waves, such as those produced by combustion instabilities, on flows within the engine is also taking place in close collaboration with experimental work on the same subject.
