Open call for students

There are always various topics for Bachelor and Master theses available, depending on your interests and educational background. For an individual assessment please contact Prof. Myles Bohon or Eric Bach.

Thrust stand

A new RDC test stand with thrust measurement capability is to be developed. The work includes the setup, calibration, and commissioning of the facility as well as a number of measurements with different configurations.

This project can be offered as a Bachelor or Master thesis.

If you are interested please contact Eric Bach.

Characterization of flow probes

This work focuses on obtaining transfer functions for the various flow probes used on the RDC. The project includes design and commissioning of a calibration rig with up to 10kHz forcing, as well as a comparison to analytical models.

This project can be offered as a Bachelor or Master thesis.

If you are interested please contact Eric Bach.

Investigation of injector designs

The actual performance of an RDC is the result of a pressure loss across the air injector, and the pressure rise from the detonation process. However, increased coupling between air plenum and combustion chamber leads to unwanted resonance.

Adequate fuel-air mixing on the other hand is mainly driven by appropriate fuel injector design. In the context of this project, the influence of both components will be investigated

This project can be offered as a Master thesis.

If you're interested please contact Eric Bach.

RDC with optical access

This project includes the design and implementation of a fused silica (quartz glass) outer body for the RDC. The optical access is then to be used to capture and analyze high speed video of the propagating detonation wave.

This project can be offered as a Master thesis.

If you're interested please contact Eric Bach.
