Modelling Heat Transfer in the Presence of Acoustic Waves
Statement of Research Advisor
Chandler’s research seeks to capture the link between traditional acoustic waves and the very elusive problem of heat transfer augmentation in rocket chambers. His work may be viewed as groundbreaking because it opens up a new avenue for research into the direct effects of acoustic mode shapes on thermal loading of chamber structures, namely, what could be referred to as unsteady fluid/structure interactions in large combustors.
