Sector-rig test results of four combustor configurations for medium-sized, gas-turbine engines are presented. The sector test section consists of a three-injector combustor cross-section, unrolled to a rectangular area, and simulating about a sixty-eight degree section of the combustor. Performance and emissions data are presented for four design-of-experiment (DOE) combinations of 1) air swirlers, 2) fuel injectors, and 3) primary-zone lengths. Emission concentrations from gas sampling are given for NOx, CO, and UHC as a function of inlet temperature, pressure, and overall fuel air ratio. NOx production as a function of inlet temperature, pressure, stoichiometry, and residence time are presented. The trade-off between NOx and CO is given over a range of operating conditions for each sector configuration.
