Abstract
A COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) ANALYSIS OF IGNITION AND BLOWOUT IN GAS TURBINE AUGMENERS IS PROPOSED IN ORDER TO IMPROVE OUR UNDERSTANDING OF IGNITION AND OF METHODS OF MAINTAINING STABLE COMBUSION. THE INTERACTION OF AERODYNAMICS AND COMBUSTION CHEMISTRY IS SO COMPLEX THAT GAS TURBINE AFTERBURNER DESIGN HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED BY USING EMPIRICAL CORRELATIONS AND EXPERIENCE. COMPUTATIONALLY EFFICIENT ALGORITHMS TO SOLVE THE NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS ON SUPER COMPUTERS WILL BE USED TO PROVIDE NEW DESIGN TOOLS FOR ANALYZING IGNITION AND BLOWOUT PHENOMENA. AN UNDERSTANDING BASED ON THIS MORE RIGOROUS ANALYSIS WILL RESULT IN BETTER, MORE RELIABLE DESIGNS FOR STABILIZING LOW PRESSURE, LOW SPEED FLAMES.
