Abstract: This project study discusses the combustor liner metal temperature prediction methodology for aero gas turbine. All modes of heat transfer for thermal analysis is considered. Radiation due to combustion gas, conduction due to presence of low conductivity thermal barrier coating and the liner and convection due to combustion gas and cooling air are estimation. Combustor liner metal temperature is an important input for determining the creep life.The objective of the present study is thermal analysis of combustor liner to estimate the metal temperature distribution for a given cooling configuration. Heat loads coming on the liner is calculated to carry out Finite Element analysis using commercial software ANSYS. The geometrical model is generated and meshing is done with suitable elements for thermal analysis. The analysis is carried out for different design steady state conditions to evaluate the maximum metal temperature. 1D analysis is carried for the convective and radiative fluxes from energy balance and 1D metal temperature is estimated. Parametric analysis is carried out to study the effect liner metal temperature with different aerodynamic and geometric parameters like gas temperature, thermal barrier coating thickness, coating conductivity, and combustion gas pressure. It was observed that with increase of thermal barrier coating thickness the liner metal temperature was decreased as the conductive flux was reduced. Emissivity of gas increased with the increase of gas pressure, gas temperature and increase of air/fuel ratio. Increase of gas emissivity increases the liner metal temperature.
