Job Description

Master Thesis – Study of different concepts of damping devices for low frequency combustion dynamics at Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB

Join us on our journey into the future #FutureMakers#Siemens

Be part of an open and dynamic workplace where professional and personal development is high on the agenda. By making sustainable energy solutions more cost effective, developing new technologies for the future's smart industry and electrifying passenger and freight transport, we make reality of our vision of a sustainable world.

In order to increase the performance of the combustor systems, we have to understand the combustion behavior by studying the combustor flow and the effect of different fuels.

The challenge

  • The burners are a central part of a gas turbine and they are utterly important to minimize the combustion dynamics and emission levels, as well as maximizing the fuel flexibility for both gas and liquid fuels.
  • In the development process we use network models, CFD, water tests, atmospheric and high pressure combustion tests, and gas turbine engine tests.
  • The goal of this project is to study different concepts of incorporating damping devices for low frequency combustion dynamics in the burner and/or combustor. The work will consist of Thermo acoustic and flow analysis.
  • The proposed work is to be performed within 20 weeks and includes layout designs, 1D flow calculations, 3D-CFD flow modeling.  Previous experience with CFD preferably StarCCM, concept evaluation skills and flow calculations or acoustic calculations are an advantage.

We prefer that the work is started during autumn/winter 2018/2019 and is finished in the spring or summer. Main supervisor is Olle Lindman.

Who are you?

The project fits you who are:

  • A student of Master degree in aerodynamics or similar
  • Interested in gas turbines  
  • Willing to learn and try out new designs in CFD.
