Large Eddy Simulation Modeling of Flashback and Flame Stabilization in Hydrogen-rich Gas Turbines using a Hierarchical Validation Approach

Performer: University of Texas at Austin

Project No: FE0007107

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will focus on the development of a computer model that can simulate combustion of high hydrogen content (HHC) fuels. Improving large-eddy simulation (LES) models that can predict flashback characteristics for HHC fuels will improve the design process for hydrogen combustors that could potentially produce fewer emissions at higher temperatures. Specifically, this project will develop an LES model validated against direct numerical simulations, conduct targeted experimental studies to produce high quality data under engine relevant conditions to validate the models, and transfer the validated models to industry.
