In the last twenty years there has been a huge growth in use of gas turbines in the industry, in power plants, air planes and rackets. The efficiency of gas turbines impact on fuel usage and high efficient gas turbines will reduce our costs. Different parts of gas turbines are: intake for air, compressor to raise the pressure, combustor or combustion chamber in which air and fuel are mixed and burned, Turbine to extract the energy and exhaust. To increase the efficiency of a gas turbine system or gas turbine engine we have to investigate each part separately. Combustion is one of the most important processes occurring in combustor. The flow in combustion chamber is classified as reacting flows. Therefore, the design of combustion chamber is of great importance. CFD simulations are necessary to investigate how the fuel is burned and analyze the flow patterns, distribution of air. The results of these simulations reduce the cost of product design and will have crucial effects on improvement of our environment.
