  • A multi-million dollar retrofit project was initiated to update a number of older numerical control machine tools. The retrofit replaced the servo control systems, the indexing motors, drive systems and spindle motor. One machine was upgraded as a prototype, but several dynamic problems in both the indexing systems and spindle drive became apparent. These dynamic problems were unacceptable in their effect on machining accuracy. Acoustic intensity measurements were used to pinpoint the source of an irritating 3 KHz tone. This tone indicated a significant amount of energy resulting in a high displacement in the indexing motors. Frequency response measurements ofmore » the motor response vs the power supply input quantified the motor problem and the acoustic levels. Modal analysis was applied to the axial resonances of the index motors to determine the response of the mechanical coupling and run up/down tests were used to determine the spindle motor drive problems. 8 figs.« less
  • The results of direct numerical simulations of chemically reacting mixing layers are presented. The reaction considered is a binary, irreversible reaction with no heat release, so that only the effect of the turbulence on the chemical reaction is investigated. The simulation results are shown to be consistent with similarity theory, and are found to be in approximate agreement with laboratory data, even though there are no adjustable constants in the method.
  • The development of turbulent combustion models that reflect some of the most important characteristics of turbulent reacting flows requires knowledge about the behavior of key quantities in well defined combustion regimes. In turbulent flames, the coupling between the turbulence and the chemistry is so strong in certain regimes that is is very difficult to isolate the role played by one individual phenomenon. Direct numerical simulation (DNS) is an extremely useful tool to study in detail the turbulence-chemistry interactions in certain well defined regimes. Globally, non-premixed flames are controlled by two limiting cases: the fast chemistry limit, where the turbulent fluctuations.more » In between these two limits, finite-rate chemical effects are important and the turbulence interacts strongly with the chemical processes. This regime is important because industrial burners operate in regimes in which, locally the flame undergoes extinction, or is at least in some nonequilibrium condition. Furthermore, these nonequilibrium conditions strongly influence the production of pollutants. To quantify the finite-rate chemistry effect, direct numerical simulations are performed to study the interaction between an initially laminar non-premixed flame and a three-dimensional field of homogeneous isotropic decaying turbulence. Emphasis is placed on the dynamics of extinction and on transient effects on the fine scale mixing process. Differential molecular diffusion among species is also examined with this approach, both for nonreacting and reacting situations. To address the problem of large-scale mixing and to examine the effects of mean shear, efforts are underway to perform large eddy simulations of round three-dimensional jets.« less
