The principal requirements of industry, with respect to the numerical simulation of gas turbine combustors, are computational efficiency and algorithm robustness, together with an accurate representation of the complex fundamental processes. This paper examines the performance of the premixed combustion models implemented in the commercial CFD package Fluent™, in order to validate the ability to model combustion in the context of a premixed gas turbine combustor. The predictions of the model are found to compare well with the experimental results available, demonstrating robustness and computational efficiency.
