Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a fluid-structure interaction study is conducted to examine the effectiveness of using an inlet comb on the mechanical stability of fuel plates, and the results show that the static divergence at the inlet end is effectively eliminated with the installation of a support comb.
