Development of Criteria for Flameholding Tendencies within Premixer Passages for High Hydrogen Content Fuels

Performer: University of California, Irvine

Project No: FE0007045

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will focus on evaluating flameholding tendencies of various combustor premixer geometric features using high hydrogen content fuels. The development of design guides that accurately infer when flameholding will occur will lead to hydrogen combustor designs that produce fewer emissions at higher temperatures. Specifically, this project will evaluate flameholding of various fuels at high temperatures and pressures that are relevant to actual turbine conditions.
