Performance of a Tubular Turbojet Combustor at High Pressures and Temperatures

Description: Memorandum presenting the effects on combustor performance of operation at the high inlet-air pressures, temperatures, and velocities representative of conditions that may be encountered in high-pressure-ratio turbojet engines or at high flight speeds studied in a single tubular combustor. Some of the performance characteristics investigated were combustor-liner temperatures, carbon deposition, smoke formation, and combustion efficiency.

High-Altitude Performance of an Experimental Turbojet Combustor Having Variable Primary-Air Admission

Description: Report presenting an investigation of 47 experimental tubular designs embodying variable primary-air openings to control the fuel-air ratio in the combustion zone at simulated high-altitude operating conditions for a representative 5.2-pressure-ratio engine. The performance characteristics considered were combustion efficiency, operating range, and pressure loss. Results regarding the effect of fuel injector design, effect of primary-air baffles, and performance characteristics of the best models are provided.

Performance at Simulated High Altitudes of a Prevaporizing Annular Turbojet Combustor Having Low Pressure Loss

Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation conducted to reduce the pressure drop in an experimental combustor designed to operate with high efficiencies at high altitude. The combustor utilized a previously designed prevaporizing fuel system that supplied vapor fuel to the injectors for high-altitude operation. Results regarding combustor development and performance of final combustor model 47L are provided.

Performance of a Short Turbojet Combustor With Hydrogen Fuel in a Quarter-Annulus Duct and Comparison With Performance in a Full-Scale Engine

Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation of a number of short turbojet combustor configurations for hydrogen fuel in a quarter-annulus duct. The best combustor liner consisted of an annular primary zone and a secondary zone composed of T-shaped channels sloping from the primary zone to the combustor wall.

A Preliminary Investigation of the Performance of a Short Length Turbojet Combustor Using Vaporized Hydrocarbon Fuels

Description: "Two short turbojet combustors designed for use with vaporized hydrocarbon fuels were tested in a one-quarter annular duct. The experimental combustors consisted of many small "swirl-can" combustor elements manifolded together. This design approach allowed the secondary mixing zone to be considerably reduced over that of conventional combustors" (p. 1).

Radiant Heat Transfer From Flames in a Single Tubular Turbojet Combuctor

Description: Memorandum presenting an investigation to determine the energy transfer by thermal radiation from the flame of a single tubular turbojet-engine combustor to the combustor liner. The effects of variations in combustor inlet-air pressure, fuel-air ratio, and air mass flow on the transfer of radiant energy were studied.

Radiant Heat Transfer From Flames in a Single Tubular Turbojet Combustor

Description: An experimental investigation of thermal radiation from the flame of a single tubular turbojet-engine combustor to the combustor liner is presented. The effects of combustor inlet-air pressure, air mass flow, and fuel-air ratio on the radiant intensity and the temperature and emissivity of the flame are reported. The total radiation of the "luminous" flames (containing incandescent soot particles) was much greater (4 to 21 times) than the "nonluminous" molecular radiation.

Effect of Distribution of Basket-Hole Area on Simulated Altitude Performance of 25 1/2-Inch-Diameter Annular-Type Turbojet Combustor

Description: A simulated altitude performance of a 25 1/2-inch-diameter annular-type turbojet combustor was performed to determine the effect of the distribution of basket-hole area on the altitude operational limits of the engine as imposed by the combustor.Total pressure drop was recorded, as well as the effect of fuel-nozzle flow capacity,and fuel-nozzle spray angle for one basket configuration. General observations were made for all configurations regarding flames, extent of afterburning, and durability of the baskets.

Turbojet combustor efficiency with ceramic-coated liners and with mechanical control of fuel wash on walls

Description: Report presenting an investigation to evaluate two methods of decreasing losses of unevaporated fuel from the combustion zone of turbojet-engine combustors. One method had fuel dams on the inner surface of the combustor liner and one had a ceramic coating on the combustor-liner walls. Results regarding the effect of the fuel dams, effect of ceramic coatings, effect of combination of fuel dams and ceramic coatings, and effect of ceramic coating on carbon deposition are provided.

Carbon deposition of 19 fuels in an annular turbojet combustor

Description: Report presenting the effects of fuel properties and change in simulated engine operating conditions on carbon deposition in an annular turbojet combustor. The fuel properties examined included specific gravity, volumetric average boiling temperature, hydrocarbon type, and hydrogen-carbon weight ratio. The fuels included hydrocarbons of the paraffinic, olefinic, and aromatic types as well as fuel mixtures.
