Data-Driven Modelling of instabilities in turbomachinery
Accurate evaluation of stall and flutter boundary is crucial in design of turbomachines. Aerodynamic and aeroelastic design turbomachines is conducted by simplified simulations and design rules resulting from years of experience; verification and certification are based on experimental testing and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. However, current designs have approached their limit in efficiency and noise, and to achieve significant improvements new design concepts are required. The rules for aerodynamic and aeroelastic stability do not exist for these new design concepts, and hence, the role of simulations is now more relevant than ever as engine/rig test are very expensive especially in case of failure.
The increase in computing power has enabled the use large scale CFD models, but large scale CFD computations require a significant amount of computational time and cannot be used during design. Moreover, CFD methods require the modelling of turbulence which can be a key driver for accurate modelling of instabilities. In the past few years, there has been a fruitful increase in the use of Machine Learning (ML) approaches toward forecasting unsteady turbulent fluid flows. However, the ML models which are created solely from data (referred to as ‘black-box’ models) are not suitable for stall prediction due to amount of data required for training such models to a satisfactory accuracy level. Due to shortcomings of black-box models for complex science and engineering problems, there is a growing movement towards methodologies that integrate traditional physics-based models with machine learning (ML) techniques. In this presentation the application of such an approach for evaluating the stall and flutter boundary is explored and following areas are explored:
• Turbulence modelling
• Flutter and stall  predictions

Aerodynamic and Aeroelastic Investigation of a Composite UHBR Fan
Modern low-speed Ultra-High Bypass Ratio (UHBR) fans predominantly have shorter intake lengths and employ flexible, lightweight, composite blades. These changes promote the evolution of different types of instabilities with multi-physical interactions, such as convective non-synchronous vibration (NSV). To enable further technological advancements, experimental benchmark data on representative geometries is required. Within this context, the test-case ECL5, a representative composite fan stage for UHBR engines, has been designed and tested experimentally on the facility ECL-B3 at Ecole Centrale de Lyon (ECL), with the support of the European project CATANA and the industrial SAFRAN Aircraft Engines. Numerical simulations and experimental results are in very good agreement for the stable operating range. In contrast, instability mechanisms are more complex than predicted by the employed numerical methods. Through the application of synchronized multi-physical instrumentation, the involved fluid-structure interaction is resolved. A detailed presentation of the test-bench and the experimental methodologies are presented together with the last finding about the behaviour close to the stability limit, focusing on the non-synchronous vibrations. Keywords: UHBR fan, aerodynamic performance, instability mechanisms, nonsynchronous vibration

Squeeze Film Dampers (SFDs) are effective means to ameliorate rotor vibration amplitudes and to suppress instabilities in rotor-bearing systems. A SFD is not an off-the-shelf mechanical element but tailored to a particular rotor-bearing system as its design must satisfy a desired damping ratio; if too low, the damper is ineffective, whereas if damping is too large, the SFD may lock thus aggravating the system amplitude response. The aircraft industry demands well-engineered SFDs with a low footprint to reduce cost, maintenance, weight, and space while pushing for higher operating shaft speeds to increase power output. Modern air breathing gas turbine engines implement ultra-short length SFDs (L/D ≤ 0.2) to satisfy stringent weight and space demands with low parts count. Despite the myriad of analyses and experimental results in the literature, there is little effort to assess the dynamic forced performance of sealed ends SFDs. The lecture reviews the experimental record and prediction model validations for damping and inertia force coefficients of SFDs sealed with piston ring or orings, and operating over a wide range of conditions. The issue of air ingestion and entrapment is thoroughly discussed along with its effect on the damping and inertia coefficients.

Decarbonized Combustion: Research Needs for Zero Pollution
MClimate change is the biggest challenge that our society faces. To deliver the required reduction of carbon emissions, a smooth transition is needed from the existing infrastructure to a new approach that is yet to be agreed at an international level. Consequently, combustion technologies are expected to remain important during the development of new infrastructure over the next 30 years. However, combustion technologies must be able to deliver zero pollution, which include carbon dioxide, Unburned Hydrocarbons, NOx and particulates and other substances, specific to different industrial processes. The talk will identify and review different combustion technologies that can deliver net zero carbon emissions and overall zero pollution within short and medium timescales, which include: 1.Hydrogen and its vectors (e.g. Ammonia) 2.Supercritical CO2 3.Solar or e-fuels 4.Metal nanoparticle fuel The relevance of these approaches to aviation, land and marine transport and power generation will be considered. The scientific challenges that future research must address to deliver these combustion technologies will be presented.

Progress in Modeling and Experimental Characterization of Thrust Foil Bearings for Oil Free Turbomachinery
Foil bearing is one of the air/gas-lubricated hydrodynamic (or aerodynamic) bearings that do not require an auxiliary oil lubrication system. The bearing surface is typically made of thin metallic foil and is supported by a compliant structure providing structural stiffness and damping to the bearing. The most popular compliant structure is a corrugated metal, the bump foil. Foil bearing is a widely used oil-free bearing technology along with active magnetic bearings. In contrast to the magnetic bearing, foil bearings work at extremely high temperatures, up to 650oC and cryogenic temperatures, if the lubricating gas media has proper viscosity. In recent years, foil bearings have found use in many industrial applications where oil-free operation is advantageous, such as gas turbine generators, turbo blowers, and refrigeration compressors. The bearing load capacity is typically presented in terms of the specific load capacity (SLC), which is load capacity divided by the bearing projection area (shaft diameter times bearing length). Conventional foil bearings have sufficient SLC (100~200kPa) at high speeds and for intended applications. However, at low-speed operations such as startup and shutdown, the load capacity can be inadequate, especially for large-scale turbomachines, due to the heavy weight of the rotor. Hybridization with other load-supporting mechanisms is one way to improve the load capacity of the foil bearing. In hybrid foil bearing (HFB), externally pressurized air/gas is injected into the clearance of the bearing to levitate the shaft. The concept of hybridization has been applied to both radial and axial foil bearings. This presentation provides recent progress in analytical models and experimental characterization of thrust foil bearings developed and tested at TESLAB including hybrid trust foil bearings.

Flying Cars: Opening a New Era of Intelligent Air Mobility
Flying cars refer to mobility vehicles aimed at intelligent three-dimensional mobility, mainly including electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOL) and flyable road vehicles. The development of flying cars faces three major challenges: load and range, intelligent driving, and airworthiness safety. These challenges require breakthroughs in power, platform, and traffic core technologies. Flying cars will open a new era of intelligent air mobility (IAM), including urban air mobility (UAM) and rural air mobility (RAM). IAM is expected to become the primary carrier and strategic direction for the development of low-altitude economy. Combined with intelligent ground mobility, IAM will evolve into intelligent three-dimensional mobility, serving as the primary carrier and scenario for the application of new technologies such as new energy, artificial intelligence, big data, and 5G communication. It will play a significant role in driving and leading the overall economy and society.
