FLOw control in RAdial compressor

Project description

Keeping radial compressors on the straight and narrow

In a basic jet engine, air enters the intake and is compressed. The compressed air is then forced into combustion chambers where it is sprayed with fuel and the air–fuel mixture is ignited. Compressor surge is a type of aerodynamic instability or disruption of airflow through the compressor that can be catastrophic for engine function and aircraft safety. Modern airplanes have control systems to prevent this from happening. The EU-funded FLORA project is developing passive flow control strategies to minimise compressor surge, enhancing compressor stability and engine operability for the novel high-speed radial compressors under development.
