turbo–annular combustion chamber


turbo–annular combustion chamber
An arrangement in which flame tubes are laid out within the casing, resulting in weight reduction and an ease-of-construction advantage. Airflow control is also better with this arrangement. Also known as an annular combustion chamber. See annular combustion chamber.
