Swirling Burner

This geometry represents flow through a burner, complete with an annulus diffuser, swirl producer and a combustion chamber. A hybrid mesh was generated using CENTAUR with prisms in the boundary and tetrahedra away from the walls.


  • Fuel injection holes
  • Severe cavities
  • Twisted swirl-producing blades
  • Vastly different length scales.
