SIMPLIFIED REACTIVE FLOW MODEL OF GAS TURBINE COMBUSTORS FOR PREDICTING NITRIC OXIDE EMISSION

An axi-symmetrical two-dimensional mechanistic model of gas turbine combustors has been developed which enables the authors to make point-by-point arguments on the formation and destruction of nitric oxide, taking both chemical reactions of finite rate and turbulent transport processes into account simultaneously. Two-dimensional distribution maps of velocities, temperature, nitric oxide concentration and equivalence ratio, as well as the variation of combustion efficiency in axial direction were obtained numerically for a small combustor of can-type. The effects of combustor parameters on nitric oxide emission are also discussed.
