Abstract:

MicroCoating Technologies, Inc. (MCT), in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology and Clemson University, proposes the development of a novel fuel atomization method and advanced numerical simulation tools for supercritical gas turbinecombustion systems. The project is designed to accelerate the understanding and commercialization of transcritical and supercritical fuel atomization and fuel-air mixing technology for improved performance of gas turbine engine combustion systems. Thesegoals have been identified by the Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) as pivotal technologies for the U.S. to maintain/extend its global competitive position in aircraft and missile systems. The proposed approach includesmodeling and experimental studies of atomization and mixing in gas turbine applications in order to provide basic understanding of spray break-up under supercritical conditions. Successful development of atomization methods and numerical simulation toolswill facilitate a clear path to incorporate this technology into future products such as the Joint Strike Fighter. The project is designed to develop novel fuel atomization and fuel-air mixing technology for improved performance of gas turbine enginecombustion systems. These goals have been identified by the Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) as pivotal technologies for the U.S. to maintain/extend its global competitive position in aircraft and missile systems. Resultsfrom this project will benefit DOD and commercial aircraft engines and industrial gas turbines.
