NASA: Controlling Combustion Instability

Company: NASA Glenn Research Center, USA
Published: Jan 2011

Ultra-low-emission combustors being developed for aircraft gas turbine engines are more susceptible to combustion instabilities. Caused by interaction between fluctuating heat release and naturally occurring acoustic resonances, these instabilities can shorten the life of the engine and result in premature mechanical failure.
