Forced synchronization of quasiperiodic oscillations in a thermoacoustic system

In self-excited combustion systems, the application of open-loop forcing is known to be an effective strategy for controlling periodic thermoacoustic oscillations, but it is not known whether and…

Forced synchronization of periodic and aperiodic thermoacoustic oscillations: lock-in, bifurcations and open-loop control

Synchronization is a universal concept in nonlinear science but has received little attention in thermoacoustics. In this numerical study, we take a dynamical systems approach to investigating the…

Mutual synchronization of self-excited acoustic oscillations in coupled thermoacoustic oscillators

Synchronization refers to the adjustment of rhythms of two nonidentical oscillators due to interaction. In this study, we report for the first time on the ability of computational fluid dynamics…

Nonlinear Dynamics of a Swirl-Stabilized Combustor under Acoustic Excitations: Influence of the Excited Combustor Natural Mode Oscillations

In this study, experimental measurements are performed on a swirl-stabilized combustor to study the nonlinear combustor dynamic characteristics under acoustic excitations. The imposed acoustic…

Complex system approach to investigate and mitigate thermoacoustic instability in turbulent combustors

Thermoacoustic instability in turbulent combustors is a nonlinear phenomenon resulting from the interaction between acoustics, hydrodynamics, and the unsteady flame. Over the years, there have been…

Excitation of the precessing vortex core by active flow control to suppress thermoacoustic instabilities in swirl flames

In this study, we apply periodic flow excitation of the precessing vortex core at the centerbody of a swirl-stabilized combustor to investigate the impact of the precessing vortex core on flame…

Chaos, synchronization, and desynchronization in a liquid-fueled diffusion-flame combustor with an intrinsic hydrodynamic mode.

It is shown that a liquid-fueled diffusion-flame combustor can exhibit dynamics as complex as those of its gaseous- fueled premixed-flame counterparts and the need to be exceptionally careful when selecting a diagnostic signal from which to calculate nonlinear measures of self-excited thermoacoustic oscillations is highlighted.
