Hydrogen combustion in aircraft gas turbines

Short Description

Within the framework of this project, the combustion chamber of a jet engine in the thrust range of 1kN will be adapted for the combustion of hydrogen. Therefore the rotor bearings as well as the controller of the jet engine need to be adjusted. The emissions should be significantly improved compared to the current state of technology. The new combustion chamber concept will be validated experimentally in a scaled version.
