Abstract : A long-term goal of the Air Force is to develop near-stoichiometric gas turbine combustors that will burn broad-specification fuels, and have low maintenance and high durability. Towards meeting this goal, this program had two principal objectives: to design and conduct experiments that will establish a fundamental understanding of lean blowout (LBO), swirling flames, kinetically controlled combustion, and turbine blade cooling, and to provide data sets for evaluating and refining computer models of gas turbine combustor. In this final report, we present the (Combustion Data Sets that may be used by modelers in the industry and other laboratories for evaluating and refining computer models of gas turbine combustor. These data sets are for three different technical tasks; Step Combustor Task, Bluff Body Combustor Task, and Swirl Combustor Task. More exhaustive information is available in the individual papers listed in this report. All the data sets were prepared using Microsoft Excel V.4.0 for IBM PC- Compatible computers and are available on computer diskettes.... Turbulent combustion modeling, Dump combustor, Swirling flames, Bluff body combustion.
