 November 21, 2012, 23:28 How to calculate swirl without using swirl generators #1 New Member   srinivasan Join Date: Nov 2012 Location: pulivendula Posts: 5 Rep Power: 13 Sir, I am working on simulation of combustion process in axial flow gas tubine combustor. The main reference journal paper has s 2-D model and no information about the swirler. They have solved for swirl number 0.37,0.76 and 1.2. The air inlet ratios are as follows primary(axial):secondary(axial):dilution(axial) as 5:7:8. Now, I am looking forward for a method to calculate swirl. Is there any formula/method to calculate swirl in terms of velocities. I request you to help me.

In 2D x-y plane flow the only non-zero Wik's are Wxy = -Wyx = (Ux,y-Uy,x)/2.
