Recent Advances in Experimental and Numerical Analysis of Combustor Flow Fields in Supersonic Flow Regime

K.M.Pandey, Member IACSIT and A.P. Singh

Abstract—Survey of experimental and numerical studies have been done for different complex flow fields with respect to different aspect by mixing of different types of fuel and mixture with high speed flows  in the combustion chamber.  In this field many researchers worked to develop a configuration giving efficient mixing and combustion, also meeting the requirements of flame holding and completion of combustion with sufficient stabilization in the flow field.  The main attention is paid to the local intensity of heat release, which determines, together with the duct geometry, techniques for flame initiation and stabilization, injection techniques and quality of mixing the fuel with oxidizer, the gas-dynamic flow regime. From the survey it concluded that some area in which more attention to be paid like total pressure loss in combustion chamber and design a contour to make the flow at Mach number 2 for various higher Mach numbers for supersonic combustion and analyze the flow properties in combustion chamber and its effect by using the variety of fuel with the help of CFD tool.

Index Terms—Complex flow, contour design, flame holding,  high speed flow, total pressure loss
