EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT FUEL SUPPLY TYPES ON COMBUSTION CHARACTERISTICS BEHIND GROUP OF V-GUTTER FLAME HOLDERS: EXPERIMENTAL AND NUMERICAL STUDY

ABSTRACT
Experiments on fuel effects flame stabilization processes, NOx generation and temperature at combustion chamber outlet when using a group of three V-gutter flame holders have been reported. Fuel supply directly to the re-circulation zone on the inside of the V-gutter (type A fuel supply), and alternatively in the second type, fuel was supplied to the V-gutter symmetry axis on the outside (type B fuel supply have been carried out.
