Abstract : The design of gas turbine combustion chambers is becoming increasingly more sophisticated as demands on performance increase and combustor operating conditions become more and more harsh. The design compromises which account for much of the art in successful combustor design have become more difficult as gas turbine cycles reach higher pressure and temperature levels and design objectives become more rigorous. This is particularly true for military applications of gas turbines, for both manned and unmanned aircraft. Concurrently, there is significant pressure for the combustor designer to reduce development time and cost, reduce life cycle costs, increase fuel tolerance and continue to minimize the environmental impact of the combustion process. In the past two decades, an increasing amount of fundamental knowledge of chemical, aerodynamic and thermal phenomena, plus a more detailed understanding of sprays, has been applied with considerable success to practical combustor design. The papers presented at this symposium 'Combustion and Fuels in Gas Turbine Engines' are categorized under the following four subject headings: Alternative Fuels and Fuel Injection, Combustor Development, Soot and Radiation, and Combustion Modeling. Keywords: NATO furnished, After burners, Alternative fuels, Atomization drops, Distribution, Soot.
