Abstract: This paper presents design optimization of a Reverse flow annular combustor based on the calculation of geometric parameters, gas temperature profile, liner wall temperatures and position of air admission holes using the preliminary design procedure proposed by Melconian and Modak [1] with Jet A as fuel. It includes fabrication process of the combustion chamber and study of experimental results obtained from the testing of the combustor for temperature distribution at centerline, inlet and outlet of the combustor carried out at design and off design operating conditions for a small gas turbine engine.
Keywords: Reverse Flow Annular Combustor, Preliminary Design, Combustor Test Rig, Experimental Investigations.
