  • Aerospace
    propulsion applications due to their high specific impulse high thrust efficiency and high thrust density The thrusters experience sputter erosion of the insulator channel which is the primary factor that limits thruster lifetime An important area of Hall thruster research is to understand the erosion and assess thruster lifetime for which advanced diagnostics of thruster is critical Toward High Fidelity Full Engine Simulation Research in the CFD and Propulsion Laboratory is focused on the development and application of advanced CFD algorithms Members of the group work with powerful research software in order to tackle the most vexing engineering challenges of our time An example is to understand the physics of turbulent combustion and design improved combustion models for alternative fuels which at some point must replace petroleum derived fuels High fidelity models of the alternative fuel combustion process are necessary to reduce the expense of engineering simulations and thus allow a more thorough exploration how alternative fuels perform in existing and new propulsion systems A long term goal of the group is to realize a full gas turbine engine simulation on a petascale computer within the next 10 years This can only be achieved by using highly scalable and sophisticated
