Predictive Large Eddy Simulation Modeling and Validation of Turbulent Flames and Flashback in Hydrogen Enriched Gas Turbines

Performer: University of Texas at Austin

Project No: FE0012053

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will focus on the development of a computational model that can capture flame flashback and propagation for combustion of high hydrogen content (HHC) fuels. Improving large-eddy simulation models for HHC fuels will lead to hydrogen combustor designs that produce fewer emissions at higher temperatures. Specifically, this project will construct a moderate-pressure turbulent stratified burner test facility to validate the predictive model with correlations between mixture fraction and velocity and flame front geometry over a wide range of turbine relevant conditions.
