Development of a Vortex Combustor (VC) for space/water heating applications (proof-of-concept model development)
Description: Based on the results and experience gained from the exploratory model tests, a 0.6 MB/H experimental model has been designed and the construction is nearly complete. This model incorporates a variable (cooling surface area) center heat removal unit and flexible air flow rate and velocity controls. It is also readily convertible to an outside heat removal arrangement for capacity increase. Suitable instrumentation will be installed obtaining quantitative data for finalizing the design of the proof-of-concept model. Tests will begin early in December 1988. Design of the proof-of-concept model is expected to be ready for Preliminary Design Review early in 1989.
