Abstract : Two students were supported under the Department of Defense Augmentation Awards for Science and Engineering Research Training (AASERT) Program. Mr. Mark McMurray was supported from 15 August 1992 through 14 August 1994, and Mr. Christopher Jones was supported from 15 August 1994 through 14 August 1995. Mark McMurray completed his M.S. degree and accepted employment at Champion Spark Plug Company. Chris Jones expects to complete the requirements for his M. S. degree by August 1996. Mr. McMurray's research pertained to the study of the effects of incomplete fuel-air mixing on the emission of oxides of nitrogen (Nox) and stability characteristics of lean premixed gas turbine combustors. Mr. Jones' research addressed the use of active control to inhibit combustion instabilities in gas turbine combustors.
