The main objective of this research is to assess an innovative, low nitrogen oxides emission combustor concept, which has the potential to achieve the long term European emissions goals for aircraft engines. Lean lifted spray flames and their very low nitrogen oxides emissions are combined with an inclination of burners in annular combustor leading to a more compact combustor with superior stability range. The presented combustor concept was developed in the frame of the European research project CHAIRLIFT (Compact Helical Arranged combustoRs with lean LIFTed flames). CHAIRLIFT combustor concept is based on “low swirl” lean lifted spray flames, which features a high degree of premixing and consequently significantly reduced nitrogen oxides emissions and flashback risk compared to conventional swirl stabilized flames. In the CHAIRLIFT combustor concept, the lifted flames are combined with Short Helical Combustors arrangement to attain stable combustion by tilting the axis of the flames relative to the axis of the turbine to enhance the interaction of adjacent flames in a circumferential direction. A series of experimental tests were conducted at a multi-burner array test rig consisting of up to five modular burners at different burner inclination angles (0° and 45°), equivalence ratios, and relative air pressure drop at ambient conditions. ... mehr
