Fluid dynamics simulation of a generic gas turbine combustor

    Yannick Baux     Customer Case     14.05.2017

This case study on combustion and radiative heat transfer in a generic gas turbine (GGT) combustor of TU Darmstadt illustrates the multi-physics modeling capabilities in OMNIS™/Open-DBS. Three test cases are simulated:

  • Adiabatic non-premixed combustion
  • Non-adiabatic non-premixed combustion with radiative heat losses
  • Partially premixed combustion.
