OSCILOS

The open source combustion instability low order simulator

1. OSCILOS_long

The theory underpinning OSCILOS_long, along with relevant references, is explained in detail the Technical Report. This is included in the code download, and can be downloaded separately here.

For a practical guide on using OSCILOS_long from within the Matlab environment, a User Guide is included in the code download, and can be downloaded separately here.

2. OSCILOS_Sim

The practical guide on using OSCILOS_Sim from within the Simulink environment is included in the code download, and can be downloaded separately here.

3. OSCILOS_ann

The practical guide on using OSCILOS_ann from within the Matlab environment, as well as the basics of the background theory, is included in the code download, and can be downloaded separately here. The 2019 reference paper "A systematic study of nonlinear coupling of thermoacoustic modes in annular combustors" below is also useful for more details on the modelling.
