Compact Helical Arranged combustoRs with lean LIFTed flames

Project description

Assessing a combustor designed for low emissions

The EU-funded CHAiRLIFT project plans to assess an innovative combustor designed for next-generation lean-burn engines. In this new combustor, the lifted spray flames will feature a high degree of premixing, which will result in significantly reduced NOx emissions. Compared with conventional swirl stabilised flames, lifted spray flames strongly minimise the risk of combustor flame flashback and reduce susceptibility to thermoacoustics instabilities. The project will also propose an alternative approach to standard flame piloting, thereby enabling further reductions in NOx emissions. Experimental and numerical investigations including the development of an advanced spray atomisation model will be carried out to assess the NOx reduction capabilities of the new combustor.
