In addition to a previous isothermal study, the present work reports on reacting swirling flow fields and droplet diameter distributions. The employed combustion chamber enabled optical access from three sides allowing the application of laser based measurement techniques. It is equipped with an airblast atomizer nozzle typical for gas turbines. The parameters of the boundary conditions were varied to such an extent that laser diagnostics were feasible. The chamber pressure and the inlet temperature were 2–3 bar and 300–350°C, respectively. The analysis of the spray droplets were performed by two velocity component phase Doppler anemometry (PDA). The measurements allowed for the investigation of axial and radial droplet velocities, Sauter mean diameter (SMD) distributions and an estimation of the volume flow rates. Comparisons of the different operating conditions and the influence of the parameters are given in the discussion.
