Thermodynamic Analysis of Flow Field at the End of Combustor Simulator
This study was carried out to investigate the effects of different cooling holes configurations on the thermal field characteristics inside a combustor simulator. In this research, a three-dimensional presentation of a true Pratt and Whitney aero-engine was simulated and analyzed. This combustor simulator combined the interaction of two rows of dilution jets, which were staggered in the stream wise direction and aligned in the span wise direction. The findings of the study indicate that the thickness of the film-cooling layer was thicker for the greater penetration depth. Furthermore, for the combustor simulator with more cooling holes, the temperature near the wall and between the jets was slightly increased. Also at the leading edge of the jet, the gradients of temperature were quite high at the jet-mainstream interface.
