Professor Miller’s research is aimed at reducing the emissions of both air travel and land-based power production. He has worked extensively with industry, presently undertaking research in collaboration with Rolls Royce, Mitsubishi,
Over the next 20 years improving core gas turbine efficiency will play a key in enabling the development of the next generation of
To achieve a step improvement in jet engine efficiency requires a change from the conventional gas turbine cycle developed by Frank Whittle. One method of achieving a 20% reduction in fuel consumption is to replace the conventional steady combustor with one in which the fuel is periodically burnt, known as a pressure gain or constant volume combustor. The Cambridge Pressure Gain Combustion Group has developed a range of technologies designed to both maximise combustor pressure gain and efficiently couple the combustor with neighbouring turbomachinery.
