Gas turbines for power generation use lean premixed flames to adhere to the strict pollutant emissions regulations. Unfortunately, this often leads to thermoacoustic instabilities. These instabilities can lead to failure of system components, flame blow-off or flashback and a reduction in efficiency. Especially the high frequency transverse...

This study presents the numerical modeling of boundary layer flame flashback in premixed tube burners with turbulent flow and high hydrogen content. The modeling approach is based on a RANS turbulence model and a flamelet combustion model using a flame surface density approach in combination with multiple turbulent flame speed correlations to...

Flame flashback is a failure mode in the operation of lean premixed combustion system. Due to higher flame speeds and lower quenching distances, hydrogen-rich fuel mixtures are prone to boundary layer flashback (BLF), where mixture flow speeds are low compared to the local flow velocity. Research at TU Munich (Eichler 2011) has resulted in new...

Lean premixed flames are being used in gas turbines to reduce the emission of NOx. Unfortunately, it results often in thermoacoustic instabilities. These instabilities are high amplitude pressure oscillations which cause damage to the combustion system, reduce efficiency, flame blow-off or flashback. While the cause for instabilities due to...

With increasing discussion and legislation around emissions, gas turbines have evolved to limit their emissions, especially NOx emissions. The way of operating the gas turbine, with lean premixed combustion...

Flame flashback is an intrinsic problem in lean premixed combustion. Due to higher flame speeds and lower quenching distances, hydrogen-rich fuel mixtures are especially prone to boundary layer flashback (BLF). Research at TU Munich (Eichler 2011, Baumgartner 2014) has resulted in new insights into the mechanism of BLF, revealing a strong...

The German Aerospace Centre (DLR) has in the past years been performing test runs with their experimental sub-scale combustion chambers to measure and investigate the effects of unstable combustion. Some of these investigations are focused on the heat flux to the chamber walls, changes in which can cause a significant shift in chamber wall...

Ever since the early stages of space transportation in the 1940’s, and the related liquid propellant rocket engine development, combustion instability has been a major issue. High frequency combustion instability (HFCI) is the interaction between combustion and the acoustic field in the combustion chamber. It destroys the thermal boundary layer...
