Aviation is an important contributor to anthropogenic climate change. As indirect greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2) add to the Effective Radiative Forcing (ERF) induced by aircraft emissions. This work addresses a better understanding of emission mitigation by investigating dependencies between engine parameters and emitted...

Today's electricity supply falls short of current demands, leading to the utilization of gas turbines in both ground based and avionic infrastructures. Nevertheless, these often rely on carbon-based fuels, resulting in escalating CO2 emissions. However, adopting hydrogen as a fuel eliminates carbon emissions. Aside from zero carbon emissions,...

To achieve the emission goals set out by the International Maritime Organization in 2018. Low or zerocarbon fuels will have to be used. Ammonia is considered to be a possible candidate since it doesn’t contain carbon. This thesis will attempt to study two methods that characterize the closed-cylinder process of an internal combustion engine; the...

HIsarna is a new and breakthrough smelting reduction technology for producing liquid hot metal for steelmaking directly from iron ores. Compared to the conventional blast furnace route, HIsarna achieves a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions by eliminating coking and the need for iron ore agglomeration processes such as sintering and pelletizing and...

With ongoing research towards clean combustion, hydrogen has been identified as a potential alternative to natural gas fuel, for example in power generation sectors utilizing gas turbines because of their inherent nature of being a carbon-free energy carrier. However, it is crucial to clarify that the ultimate goal is not just carbon-free...

A series of numerical simulations was executed using the high-performance cluster at TU Delft's Aerospace Faculty. The primary objective was to gain deeper insights into the intricate dynamics of a sonic transverse jet in a supersonic crossflow with an oblique induced shock wave, especially concerning mixing. These simulations delved into the...

There is a need to examine the potential of alternative methods such as Variational Multiscale Method (VMM) for the ability to improve the efficiency of combustion simulations. However the computational expense of a LES run of a 3D turbulent non-premixed combustion problem is high due to the large variety of length and time scales in turbulent...

Currently, our society faces a pressing challenge: global warming. The solution lies in the energy transition, which replaces fossil fuels with clean sources. This requires a global effort across all sectors, including shipping. While a significant portion of shipping relies on polluting fuels, the European Union’s Green Deal aims for climate...

This graduation thesis studies the CI combustion of ammonia and hydrogen in an ICE. It contains a review of the literature and a modeling study of the ignition and cylinder performance of the AmmoniaDrive test engine. AmmoniaDrive is a NWO-funded research project that aims to decarbonize shipping by introducing an ammonia-fuelled SOFC-ICE power...

Battery electric vehicles (BEV) as opposed to internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEV) are seen as a viable solution for reducing transportation related environmental impacts. There are however advantages and disadvantages to both alternatives. Environmental life cycle assessments (LCA) are used to quantify the environmental lifecycle impact...

Flameless combustion is a combustion regime which results in drastically lower 𝑁𝑂𝑥 emissions. 𝑁𝑂𝑥 has been found to influence global warming through its interactions with ozone chemistry and, exposure to this gas has been found to have adverse health effects on humans. The jet-in-hot-coflow design...

Combustion is and remains for the foreseeable future an essential chemical process. The physical and mathematical modelling of such processes can help to optimise the design and operation of combustion furnaces which is critical for fuel efficiency. Given the combined complexity and interaction of the gas flow dynamics and the reaction processes...

Madhavan, Aravind Krishna (author)
This investigation focuses on the premixed conical flame, a mainstay of combustion diagnostics. While extensive studies have explored high-frequency oscillations in the canonical Bunsen flame, little attention has been given to low-frequency oscillations affecting flame fronts. This thesis aims to explain the origins of these oscillations and...

High-frequency combustion instabilities represent the main technical risk faced by design engineers when developing new chemical rocket propulsion systems. Such instabilities are driven by the coupling between the flames’ heat release rate and the combustion chamber’s acoustic field. As such, they can only be assessed during detailed design...

A combination of high-resolution imaging, low-pressure gas adsorption, and small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering quantifies changes in the pore characteristics of pulverized shale samples under oxic and anoxic environments up to 300 ℃. Clay-rich early-mature shales have a fair potential to generate hydrocarbons, the total organic carbon...

There is no applicable existing standard for the determination of safety characteristics for hybrid mixtures. While developing a new standard in a joint research project in Germany first results from parameter studies led to a standard procedure that can be adopted by laboratories that are already testing dusts in the so called 20L-sphere...

In the current work, the Flamelet Generated Manifold (FGM) method is applied with large-eddy simulation (LES) to investigate the effect of methane on dual-fuel (DF) spray ignition. The diesel surrogate n-dodecane is injected as the so-called pilot fuel into selected lean methane–air mixtures, ranging from ϕ<sub>CH<sub>4</sub></sub>=0 to ϕ<sub...

Laser-Induced Grating Spectroscopy (LIGS) was applied in a high-pressure combustion facility. Instantaneous (sub-μs), spatially resolved (within 5 mm) measurements of temperature and molar fractions of water were obtained using thermal and electrostrictive LIGS signals. Temperatures up to 1800 K and water molar fractions between 0.01 and 0.12...
