Abstract:

The turbulent flowfield in a backmixed combustor is modeled analytically by simultaneously solving the governing partial differential conservation equations. An algebraic and a two-equation eddy viscosity model are employed in the numerical simulation to account for the turbulence transport processes. Predicted distributions of isothermal flow properties are systematically compared to experimentally obtained data to appraise the eddy viscosity models.
