The DGCA also informed the minister that manufacturer has taken measures to address significant problems of Engines related to combustion chambers distress and No 3 bearing issues by replacing Block B combustion chambers with Block C and providing dry face bearing seals.
Our long-term goal is to develop LES methods with an advanced turbulent combustion model to simulate spray combustion encountered in high-temperature-rise aeroengine combustion chambers. Previously, this solver has been successfully used to simulate the afterburner flow field of a solid ducted rocket [18].

Plasma-sprayed ceramic coatings in combustion chambers of alternative car engines have been successfully developed for the thermal protection of components such as pistons, valves, upper liners, etc.
Modern techniques of designing and debugging combustion chambers of gas-turbine engines should use computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
KM+ serves as a detergent to clean engine fuel delivery systems, intake valves and combustion chambers. For older engines, it cleans and restores the fuel delivery systems and combustion system.
The paper provided a fairly exhaustive set of equations for modeling the individual acoustic elements that are commonly found in combustion chambers, flues, and intake systems.
However, pressure sensors are not commonly used in production engines as engine designs having extra recesses into individual combustion chambers are considered undesirable [5].
Table below shows the different flow rates of air in different zones of combustion chambers designed at different primary zone equivalence ratios.
--The compression and sealing degrees of the combustion chambers are corroborated with the wear of the sealing element.
