An annular combustor with rotating fuel injection system is called a slinger combustor, which has been widely employed in small gas turbine engines. In the present study, cold flow CFD analysis of 1200 sector of a slinger combustor, with inlet and exhaust adaptations required for its experimental characterization, satisfying the periodicity conditions has been carried out for three different test rig conditions. Total pressure loss, variation of velocity components along the measurement planes and mass flow through various features of combustor has been estimated.
