The theoretical analysis, design, and experimental study of a high-speed combustion chamber are described. Such a burner may be used when the compressor outflow speed is so high that diffusion to the usual burner entrance conditions presents severe loss penalties. The study showed for a small mass flow-high pressure ratio turbomachine, that combined diffusor and combustor losses are minimum for a burner entrance Mach number of about 0.5. To design the burner a finite rate chemistry and turbulent mixing computer program was used; the combustor modeling and flame spread predictions are discussed. A series of experiments are described and burner pressure loss and temperature profiles are shown over a range of burner air-flow conditions.
