The exit temperature profile has a great effect on the reliability and security in a gas turbine. In this paper, the exit temperature profile of a small engine reverse-flow combustor with three injectors test module was experimentally obtained to qualitatively analyze the influence of the dilution hole distribution. The test model was a three-injector rectangular reverse-flow combustor with swirling flow atomizing. A 1D moving thermocouple rake was used to measure the global exit temperature profile of the combustor. The pressure was at ambient pressure with the inlet temperature was 290K. The FAR was in the range of 0.03. The dilution holes were in opposed and staggered arrangements. The experimental results showed that the exit temperature profile was obviously influenced by the dilution holes. Compared with the opposed dilution jets, the staggered dilution jets provided more uniform circumferential exit temperature profile, but a little higher pattern factor of 0.1725. The numerical results showed that the staggered dilution jets generated a larger scale counter-rotating vortex pairs. The inner and outer jets not only did not interact with each other (especially at the outer ring of combustor), but also filled the intermediate regions of dilution jets, resulting in a higher gas mixing rate. Consequently, the staggered dilution jets provided a better mixing performance for the outer ring of combustor.
