What is it about?

Combustor flow homogenization in an aircraft engine is typically accomplished using large jets of cooling air. These jets can be used as an additional source of cooling for the downstream components, but their high mixing might instead increase heating. Our work shows that the tradeoffs are important to understand, to prevent burnup of critical aircraft components.
