Gas turbine engines are the primary propulsion device for todays aircraft. These engines operate on liquid hydrocarbon-based fuels and as such can yield a range of undesirable pollutants including gaseous emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), green-house gases (GHG, largely CO2, really a combustion product) and unburned hydrocarbons (UHC), as well as nanometer-sized carbonaceous particulate matter or soot. Due to increasing concerns for the environment and causes of global climate change, the manufacturers of gas turbine engines are today facing increasingly more stringent governmental and/or environmental regulations pertaining to emissions. These increased regulations are in turn driving the need for significantly reduced engine emission strategies. Unfortunately, there are major scientific and technological challenges associated with designing robust, low-emission, gas turbine combustors. TO BE CONT’D
