Inflatable Swirl Vanes Design for Air Fuel Mixture in the Aircraft Combustion Chamber Designed for Higher Turbulence Combustion

Mr. Anwar Wali Gutti


The product design disclosed in this paper is an important component of the airplane engines. The product solves the problem of turbulence variation adjustment for the incoming air in the air plane for combustion. It consists of a telescopic shaft carrying circular inflatable pipes having expanding inflatable blades. The purpose of the swirl vanes is to reduce the speed of the incoming air and create turbulence by wake effect so that the air can be properly mixed with the fuel and undergo combustion. The shaft is an assembly of different size hollow pipes which can slide inside each other in forward and backward direction attached with inflatable pipes through outside with expanding blades at sideways. The incoming air is divided in two streams, out of which one is supplied to the swirl vanes to expand and inflate it, after it expands and inflate which depends upon the air speed then the other stream flows over the swirl vanes and gets turbulent and fuel is sprayed on it and then undergoes combustion. Also the combustion chamber is designed using the compress software to handle the excess pressure and temperature of the combustion generated by using the swirl vanes.
