This task is for an ER, who will work on the synergy of the knowledge acquired in work packages 1, 2, 3 and 4. It will lead to the final project aim: prediction and control of failure in gas turbine combustors subjected to limit cycles that have evolved from combustion instabilities. A comprehensive numerical model will be developed, incorporating all relevant physical effects: combustion, acoustic and structural oscillations, heat transfer from fluid to structure and fatigue. The ER will learn to combine diverse findings from different approaches and acquire organisational and communication skills in the process.
