Effective Solutions Against Particle Matter in Aviation

The new standard on particle matter called nvPM from the ICAO enters into force on the first of January 2020. From now on, a drastic reduction in particle matter (or soot) is required to get certification for the new aircraft engines.

CBOne and FH Joanneum / Aviation work together on the advanced combustion monitoring for aircraft engines including alert on soot formation in the frame of the "emootion" project

The ICAO is the International Civil Aviation Organization, a specialized agency of the United Nations in charge of setting the principles and techniques of international air navigation and of planning and developing international air transport to ensure safe and orderly growth. The acronym nvPM stands for non-volatile particulate matter emissions. It adds-up to prior standards defined for CO2 and NOx reduction in aviation.

CBOne participates in this effort to further push the limits of what is technically possible towards the soot-free burner. Read about our activities in burner design and advanced controls to improve the mixedness of the reactants, as well as our advanced monitoring techniques designed to detect soot production - so that it is then corrected within a comfortable safety margin.

New Sensing and Actuation Methods at EVI-GTI 2019

We are happy to announce that CBOne will participate for the third time to the EVI-GTI Conference on Gas Turbine Instrumentation, taking place in Graz, Austria, on Nov. 20-21rst, 2019.

 

Hear, see, seize the flame - and set the beat.

Two papers are presented. The first is about the siren for the analysis or drive of flame dynamics. The second one is about the combined acoustic-optic monitoring method. Click the links below to download the presentations!

Lecture on Gas Turbine Combustion, TU Graz 2019-20

Welcome to the Students of the winter semester 2019-2020 edition!

This years' edition combines the contents gathered over the last 20 years about experimental combustion and combines with Mrs Farisco's inputs on modeling. 

The take-home message of this lecture is how to build a burner. It might even reconcile you with the notion of fire, and how to use it properly.
