Abstract : This report describes the results of experimental and numerical investigations on gas-turbine combustion and fuel processes. The purpose of this program is the advancement of the state-of-the-art in laser diagnostics, modeling and simulations, propulsion sciences, advanced propulsion concepts, current and next-generation gas-turbine-engine components, and high-impact revolutionary technologies for airbreathing propulsion systems. The objectives of this research program include: Development, evaluation, and utilization of state-of-the-art-laser diagnostic techniques and analytical simulations and models in the study of combustion, fuel, turbine, and compressor processes that are important to current and future propulsion systems. Performance of fundamental experiments that will advance the understanding of critical combustion and fuel processes. Identification and development of the critical-technology needs of pulsed-detonation engines. Performance of advanced-cycle-aero and aerospace-propulsion-system studies that will result in high-impact revolutionary technologies. Evaluation of potential commercial applications of advanced technologies developed during the program.
