This paper presents numerical study of high-speed combustion and its relationship with thermal stress distribution on a cavity combustion chamber. First, a physical model is established to describe high speed compressible turbulent reacting flow as well as thermal transport in combustor structure. It is then applied to a model combustor with two-staged fuel injections to examine the effects of fuel flow rate and inflow conditions on the heat flux intensity and thermal stress distributions across the thickness of the combustor wall. The result shows that the injection method of the first stage has a great influence on the flow field near the second one, and it affects combustion and heat release distribution inside the combustor. The intensity of heat flux passing through the combustor wall changes along the downstream of the flow, and large thermal stresses are generated in the vicinity of the injector, the leading edge and the trailing edge of the cavity.
