Title: COMBUSTOR ASSEMBLY FOR A TURBINE ENGINE
Abstract:
A rich-quench-lean combustor assembly for a gas turbine engine includes a fuel nozzle and a dome, the fuel nozzle attached to the dome. The combustor assembly additionally includes a liner attached to or formed integrally with the dome, the liner and the dome together defining at least in part a combustion chamber. Additionally, the liner extends between a forward end and an aft end. The liner includes a plurality of quench air jets positioned between the forward end and aft end and defines a forward section extending from the quench air jets to the dome. The dome and the forward section of the liner are configured to be cooled substantially by one or both of impingement cooling or convective cooling.
