Research on characteristics of turbo jet engine combustion chamber



The characteristics of the combustion chamber of turbo jet engine with various parameters are examined in this article. The scientific works of other authors analyzing operating parameters of the jet engines were reviewed. Their recommendations were considered. Computer simulations of the combustion chamber were performed using different combustion reactions. The exhaust gas temperature and its dependence on the combustion mixture were determined. A practical study was also carried out, during which the experimental exhaust gas temperature was measured, and the trends of temperature change were determined. After analyzing both theoretical and practical results, the conclusions are presented.
