Swirling flow in a research combustor

  title={Swirling flow in a research combustor},
  author={Juan I. Ramos and Hannu Somer},
Measurements of turbulent, confined, swirling flows have been obtained by means of a two-color laser Doppler velocimeter in a research combustor and compared with other experimental data and numerical results obtained by means of two two-equation models of turbulence. The combustor consists of two confined, con- centric, swirling jets whose mass flow rates and swirl numbers can be controlled independently, and which can be used to study cold flow, premixed and non-premixed reactive flows, and… CONTINUE READING
