A mathematical model for the description of axisymmetric swirled flow with diffusion combustion is based on numerical solution of the Reynolds equation with a k–W model of turbulence. The results of numerical and experimental investigations of local and general characteristics of flow, heat and mass transfer, combustion, and NOx formation in an annular combustor with opposite swirled air jets are presented. Satisfactory agreement between calculations and experiments is obtained. The dependences of combustor characteristics versus geometric and operational parameters are generalized.
