Re: Device Burns Fuel with Almost Zero Emissions
looks like direct injection as applied to gas turbines/Brayton cycle? It seems as though this would ensure combustion takes place more evenly (statistically speaking) throughout the space, and not concentrated in a smaller volume as occurs with normal fuel/air injection, where most combustion initiates at one spot past the injector, where the mixture has expanded to the proper pressures for ignition.
traditionally the fuel/air ratio is set in the swirl cup prior to injection to the combustor.
It seems like this would be limited to can combustors where the geometry can be controlled. Most larger engines use annular combustors or cans withe free communication between them, making the airflow far more complex.
