The report represents a brief review of the state of the art of cyclone type separators which may have application in the gas turbine-dust ingestion problem. Experimental data of various investigators are presented. Emphasis is placed on the interaction between the separation efficiency, flow rate, pressure drop, and geometrical parameters. A simple analytical model provided a means for logically comparing the separators performance reported by different investigators. A review of some recent theoretical advances is also presented. Special consideration is given to the prediction of the fractional separation efficiency and the secondary internal flow patterns. In addition to the standard text references, an extensive bibliography is included which should be of direct relevance to engineers designing high capacity cyclone type separators. Author
