Abstract:

This report constitutes a reprint of two chapters on turbopropulsion combustion expressly prepared as part of a Propulsion Text Book entitled A Comprehensive Study of Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines, edited by G. C. Oates. A variety of subjects are reviewed ranging from fundamental chemistry, thermodynamics and gas dynamics of combustion to jet engine combustor design factors, performance characteristics and engineeringanalysis tools. In addition, the impact of environmental controls and regulations is discussed and the effects alternate andor non-spec fuels may have on combustion system performance is examined. Each chapter includes an extensive reference list of related topics many of which expand further on key points discussed.
