Abstract : A JANNAF Combustion Subcommittee Technology Awareness Seminar on "Active Combustion Control (ACC) in Propulsion Systems" was held 12 November 1997 at the NASA Lewis Research Center (LeRC), Cleveland, Ohio. The objectives of the seminar were: (1) Define the need and potential of ACC to meet future requirements for gas turbines and ramjets; (2) Explain general principles of ACC and discuss recent successes to suppress combustion instabilities, increase combustion efficiency, reduce emission, and extend flammability limits; (3) Identify R&D barriers/needs for practical implementation of ACC; (4) Explore potential for improving coordination of future R&D activities funded by various government agencies. Over 40 individuals representing senior management from over 20 industry and government organizations participated. This document summarizes the presentations and findings of this seminar.
