Evaluation of Flow and Heat Transfer Inside Lean Pre-Mixed Combustor Systems Under Reacting Flow Conditions

Performer: Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Project No: FE0011762

Project Description

The goal of this Virginia Tech project is to provide a better understanding of the combustor swirling flow and its effect on liner surface heat transfer in order to improve prediction methods and design practices in combustor liner cooling for low emissions combustors. The project will focus on the interaction between the hot swirling gases and the liner wall within a gas turbine combustor. This will support the development of more effective cooling schemes to maintain and improve combustor durability.
