APEP Students Present Research at CalTech
April 21, 2014
From Left to Right: Howard Lee, Meagan Sung, and Elliot Sullivan-Lewis in the Courtyard of the Athenaeum at the California Institute of Technology.
Three APEP students presented papers at the 2014 Spring Meeting of the Western States Section of the Combustion Institute held on the campus of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA. Meagan Sung presented her research  studying different strategies to introduce water into liquid fueled combustion processes. Elliot presented research  associated with the development of criteria for determining if a reaction will hold on various geometry features representative of those found in premixing passages for advanced low emissions gas turbines and industrial burners. Howard presented research  on the development and application of optical systems for studying the dynamic behavior of a reacting air jet injected into a vitiated crossflow. Prof. McDonell accompanied the students to the meeting and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the WSS/CI.
