Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) combustor liners, due to their high temperature capability, enable the elimination of film cooling present in current metallic liners without increasing the pressure drop in the combustor section of a gas turbine engine. The absence of film cooling and the higher temperature capability of the CMC liner leads to complete combustion of carbon monoxide (CO) close to the combustor walls, resulting in a lower emissions combustor. The benefit of lower CO emissions was predicted through the use of stirred reactor network models in which a series/parallel set of individual perfectly stirred reactors (PSRs) is coupled to simulate a combustor. The paper describes the component design and analysis, emissions modeling, fabrication, and sector rig testing of silicon carbide fiber reinforced silicon carbide matrix (SiC/SiC) combustor liners.
