  • Konzeptionierung modularer Teilsysteme für den Neuaufbau der Parabelflug Siedeversuchsanlage

    Conceptual design of modular subsystems for the reconstruction of the parabolic flight boiling test rig

    2023/01/27

    At the Institute for Technical Thermodynamics, heat transfer in bubbles in microgravity is studied. For this purpose, boiling experiments were carried out in parabolic flights as part of the ESA-funded Multiscale Boiling project. At present, all components of the boiling test rig are individually connected to the main control system, which makes it difficult to keep track of them and thus to exchange assemblies easily and quickly. Currently, preparations are being made for the rebuilt of the boiling test rig. In the future, the various systems of the plant are to be modularly designed. The aim of this work is to create a concept for the modular design of the boiling test rig and to demonstrate this in practice using an example.

  • Development of an Algorithm for Optimal Parameterization of Vehicle Setups

    2023/01/26

    Setting up vehicle dynamics is a time-consuming task. Calibration engineers would like to be able to quickly start from a basic setup that is worth testing and thus have more time for the actual fine tuning. This work aims to develop an algorithm that selects all relevant vehicle dynamics parameters in such a way that a setup close to a defined optimum is found for different driving applications.

  • Simulationsbasierte Herleitung der operationellen Grenzen eines unbemannten Luftfahrzeugs abhängig von den Missionsbedingungen

    Simulation based derivation of the operational limits of an unmanned aerial vehicle depending on the mission constraints

    2023/01/25

    In view of the increasing use of unmanned aerial systems, research on suitable safety concepts for their operation is being conducted at the FSR. Based on the monitoring of the health status of individual components, it should be possible to reliably quantify the operational capability of unmanned aerial systems in the future. A simulation environment has already been set up for the institute's own hybrid aircraft SciHunter which represents the physical flight behavior as well as the flight controller.

  • Development and characterization of a fiber coupling system for mid-infrared free-space lasers

    Entwicklung und Charakterisierung eines Faserkopplungssystems für Freistrahllaser im mittleren Infrarotbereich

    2023/01/23

    Climate change and rising health concerns have led to increasingly strict regulatory emission standards for combustion engines over the past few years.

    In order to investigate the compliance with these regulations, special measurement techniques are required. Specifically, in the context of Real Driving Emissions (RDE), compact systems that allow for in situ measurement at engine tailpipe are necessary.

    Tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) is a measurement technique well suited for this task, as it allows simultaneous high speed in-situ measurement of a variety of gases. A large benefit of this technique is the application of small diode lasers which can be connected via glass-fibers and thus allowing for very small measurement devices outside the vehicles.

    The extension of the regulatory requirements made the implementation of new free-space diode lasers necessary, which are not yet fiber-coupled and thus cannot be connected to existing hardware.

    The goal of this work is the development and application of a fiber-coupling system for these free space mid-infrared diode lasers.

  • Measurements of ice adhesion stresses on a rotating plate

    Start of work: 01.02.2023

    2023/01/12

    The aircraft industry works intensively on the development of various anti-icing and ice-prevention systems. One of the most important parameters characterizing icing is an adhesion force, which determines how strong an ice layer is attached to the aircraft surface. This project will help to accurately measure the tensile and shear stresses associated with the ice adhesion. The idea is based on the application of a frozen drop on a certain surface of a centrifugal force that appeared on a rotating body.

    Numerical investigation of the influence of flame retardant on boundary layer flames

    2022/12/21

    In scientific investigations of fires and fire protection strategies, boundary layer flames are fundamental configurations. The analysis of the basic processes of the flame-wall interaction provides insights into the mechanisms of fire development and thus into possibilities of firefighting, e.g., by using flame retardants. A generic configuration developed in the SFB 150 for the investigation of the flame-wall interaction will be investigated numerically as a part of this work.

  • Experimental investigations of turbulent ammonia/hydrogen flames using laser diagnostics

    Experimentelle Untersuchungen von Ammoniak/Wasserstoff-Flammen mit Hilfe der Laserdiagnostik

    2022/12/19

    Reducing the carbon footprint in the energy sector has become a key challenge of this century that requires global collaborative efforts. Chemical storage of renewable energy, such as wind and solar, followed by thermochemical conversion for energy utilization, is an important pathway to ensure a smooth transition to a carbon-neutral economy. In the future energy mix, hydrogen (H2) will be widely used as a clean fuel, and its combustion characteristics require extensive investigations, especially under lean and turbulent conditions, which is important for gas turbine applications.

    In this work, the turbulent flame and flow field structures of NH3/H2 mixtures will be experimentally measured under turbulent conditions. The existing multi-regime burner (MRB), a special design for investigating the transition of premixed and non-premixed combustion, will be used to stabilize turbulent NH3/H2 flames. In the first step, constructive improvements should be performed on the MRB burner and operation conditions will be determined based on fuel mixture and laminar flame properties from simple 1D flame calculations in Cantera. To study the turbulence-flame interactions, the flame reaction zone will be measured by planar laser-induced fluorescence of OH radicals (OH-PLIF). From the OH-PLIF images, the curvature and flame surface density of the reactive flame front can be statistically determined. Simultaneously, the flow field will be determined by particle image velocimetry (PIV) or particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) measurements. By combining PIV with OH-PLIF, the local strain rates and their impact on the flame front topology could be analyzed.

  • Experimental investigations of turbulent hydrogen/methane combustion using advanced laser diagnostics

    Experimentelle Untersuchungen von turbulenter Wasserstoff/Methan-Verbrennung unter Verwendung fortschrittlicher Laserdiagnostik

    2022/12/19

    Reducing the carbon footprint in the energy sector has become a key challenge of this century that requires global collaborative efforts. Chemical storage of renewable energy, such as wind and solar, followed by thermochemical conversion for energy utilization, is an important pathway to ensure a smooth transition to a carbon-neutral economy. In the future energy mix, hydrogen (H2) will be widely used as a renewable clean fuel. However, its combustion characteristics still require extensive investigations, especially under lean and turbulent conditions, which is crucial for gas turbine applications.

    In this work, the turbulent H2 flame and flow field structures should be experimentally investigated by using laser diagnostics measurements. For this purpose, a high-velocity flame supplied by H2 or CH4/H2 mixtures from the central jet will be sustained by a pilot flat flame in a McKenna burner. The jet bulk velocity will be increased from 10 m/s (laminar) to approximately 200 m/s (highly turbulent) while the pilot remains at a constant exit velocity. Reactive mixtures with increasing H2 mole fractions will be used to investigate the preferential diffusion effect of H2 on the turbulent flame behavior. The flame reaction zone will be measured by single-shot planar laser-induced fluorescence of OH radicals (OH-PLIF). Simultaneously, the flow field will be determined by particle image velocimetry (PIV) or particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) measurements. From the OH-PLIF images, the curvature and flame surface density of the reactive flame front should be statistically determined. By combining PIV data, the local strain rate and its orientation to the flame front direction should be analyzed, providing insights into turbulence-chemistry interactions.

    Magnetic bearings enable rotors to levitate, which eliminates conventional bearing friction losses and extends maintenance intervals. In order to save resources on position sensors, the position of the rotor can be sensed by estimating the varying inductance of the magnetic bearings. This sensing method was successfully implemented and tried out on small-scale magnetic bearings. The main task of this work is the investigation of the accuracy of the same sensing method for large-scale magnetic bearings.

    The Department of Gas Turbines, Aerospace Propulsion Systems has been operating a transonic compressor test rig (TSV1) since 1994. Detailed investigations of the stator hub flow of a shrouded and a “cantilevered” stator are planned at this test rig as part of two research projects. The limited accessibility for measurement technology does not allow detailed analyses of the flow topology in a blade passage of the stators. Therefore, the data base of the experimentally determined data of the two configurations is to be expanded with the aid of numerical flow simulations.

  • Evaluation of the soot particle size distribution in a model aero engine combustor using Large Eddy Simulations

    at the institute for Simulation of Reactive Thermo-Fluid Systems (STFS)

    2022/11/30

    Numerical simulations of aero-engine combustors are extremely challenging due to the complex multiscale and multi-physics phenomena involved. Currently, reliable modeling and prediction of soot particle formation produced during incomplete hydrocarbon combustion is one of the major issues in combustion research. The next generation of gas turbines for more sustainable aircraft engines must meet strict limitations for soot particle mass and size distribution. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding of the processes leading to soot particle formation and its precise prediction in practical combustion systems is crucial.

  • Entwicklung eines laserdiagnostischen Prüfstands zur Untersuchung von nachhaltigen, katalytischen Prozessen

    Development of a Laser Diagnostic Test Rig for the Investigation of Sustainable Catalytic Processes

    2022/11/23

    Die Expertise des Fachgebiets RSM soll zukünftig zur Diagnose industrieller katalytischer Verfahren eingesetzt werden. Konkret sollen Prozesse analysiert werden, welche nachhaltige Materialien einsetzen und effizientere Synthesepfade erlauben. Zur Entwicklung eines besseren phänomenologischen Verständnisses sowie zur Validierung von numerischen Modellen werden daher experimentelle Daten benötigt.

    Für die Applikation der laserbasierten Messtechnik in geringem Abstand zur katalytischen Oberfläche wird ein spezieller, optisch zugänglicher Strömungskanal benötigt. Dieser muss zum einen die Anwendung verschiedener Messtechniken direkt im Prozess (operando) ermöglichen, zum anderen aber auch kontrollierte und definierte Randbedingungen bieten. In vorangegangenen Arbeiten wurden jeweils das neuartige Raman-Spektrometer (siehe Abbildung) und der katalytische Strömungskanal getrennt voneinander entwickelt. In dieser Arbeit sollen die Teilsysteme erstmals kombiniert und erste quantitative Messungen durchgeführt werden.

    Investigation of transient secondary flow phenomena of a 3D optimized stator on the transonic compressor

    At the transonic compressor test rig (TSV1), a 1.5-stage transonic compressor stage with a so-called “cantilevered” stator will be investigated as part of a future research project. The focus of the project is primarily on the identification and quantification of secondary flow phenomena close to the hub, such as corner separation. In order to be able to observe these phenomena in a time-resolved manner, a fast response total pressure comb was built. This is equipped at its 8 radial measuring positions with so called Kulite sensors, which allow a sampling rate of up to 500 kHz.

  • Development of a methodology to determine equivalence of scenarios in automated driving

    2022/10/24

    At the Institute of Automotive Engineering at TU Darmstadt (FZD), research is being conducted into methods that enable highly automated driving. As a fundamental proof of safety, testing based on traffic data is necessary. To cope with the number of tests, it is necessary to test only scenarios that are not equivalent to already tested scenarios.

    To achieve this, criteria must be defined that determine the equivalence between scenarios. Furthermore, new metrics have to be developed that can quantitatively represent these criteria.

    The goal of this work is to derive equivalence criteria for the investigated use case, to realize them in executable metrics. Finally, the metrics are to be verified using existing test data.

  • Design and commissioning of a metal particle ignition reactor for iron particle ignition experiments

    Konstruktion und Inbetriebnahme eines Metallteilchen-Zündreaktors für Experimente zur Zündung von Eisenpartikeln

    2022/10/19

    The project Clean Circles is dedicated to solving global energy problems by using iron as CO2-free, renewable and efficient chemical energy carrier. First, electricity from renewables is used to reduce iron oxide (energy storage). Then, the iron is oxidized to release thermal energy for electricity generation at a different place and time (energy release). In the collaborative research project, scientists and students from different Universities work closely on numerous experiments and simulations.

    In this student work, a new metal particle ignition reactor (MPIR) with well-defined boundary conditions should be designed and tested for single iron particle experiments. MPIR will include three modules: electrostatic-based single particle generator, an optically accessible ignition channel, and an external heating system by an annular gas flame. The concept of MPIR originates from the so-called micro-flow reactor (see Fig. 1), which has been successfully applied for gaseous and liquid fuel ignition studies. The advantage of this setup is to study the ignition/reaction kinetic by converting the trainsient process to a space-dependent process. Within this work, this concept should be realized for metal fuel ignition measurements.

    The topic is suitable for ADP, Bachelor and Master theses, and the work tasks are adapted accordingly.

    Modern flywheel storages use electric machines to convert electrical into mechanical energy and vice versa. Due to power losses caused by intensive load profiles and high speeds, flywheel storages are often operated at high temperatures. In order to estimate the lifetime of the entire system and design various components, knowledge of the system thermal behavior is required. Thermal models are then aligned with experimental results and used to estimate the thermal behavior of the system.
