Abstract:

The rapidly growing body of literature on turbine combustor modelling is reviewed. The analytical models are presented and discussed with particular emphasis placed on their ability to predict gross operating characteristics as well as pollutant emission levels. Comparison is made between theory and engine and laboratory experiments showing the general inaccuracies of current models. A suggestion for improvement of the best available model is made, and areas for fundamental research are pointed out.
