Abstract Most of the work carried out, so far, in the study of soot oxidation has used laboratory flames and shock tubes in connection with graphite to avoid the difficulty in determining the history of soot particles in complex practical flames such as those of the gas turbine. Therefore, a soot oxidation model is developed to calculate the soot burning rate in the secondary zone of a gas turbine combustor operating with heavy fuels including blends of gas oil and residual fuel oil.
