Preliminary analysis of two combustors turbofan engine
Treść / Zawartość
The problems of turbofan engines development is briefly discussed in the beginning. Next the conception of turbofan engine with two combustors is presented, and an engine thermodynamic cycle is analysed. The proposed engine it is a modification of the contemporary turbofan engine by addition of another combustor. First one is classical combustor located between high pressure compressor and turbine. Second one is located between high pressure turbine and low pressure turbine. This conception allows to lower the high pressure turbine inlet temperature. The second combustor increases energy of gasses inflow the low pressure turbine to the sufficient level for fan drive. The results of numerical analysis are used to show performance of the proposed engine and to present their advantages with compare to the classical turbofan engine construction. Then some other positive aspects of two combustors engine are discussed. It refers to possibilities of pollution emission reduction and overhauling period increasing and engine life time extension. On the other hand some aspects of engine hot elements (turbine) production simplification and cost reduction is analysed. In the next chapter the problems of the proposed engine technical realization are discussed. The summary and conclusions are presented in the last part of article.
