A lean partially premixed swirling combustor was studied by resolving the complete flow path from the swirl vanes to the chamber outlet with large-eddy simulation (LES). The flow and combustion dynamics for non-reacting and reacting situations was analysed, where the intrinsic effects of swirl vanes and counter flows on the vortex formation, vorticity distribution for non-reacting cases were examined. A modified flame index was introduced to identify the flame regime during the partially premixed combustion. The combustion instability phenomenon was examined by applying Fourier spectra analysis. Several scalar variables were monitored to investigate the combustion dynamics at different operating conditions. The effects of swirl number, equivalence ratio and nitrogen dilution on combustion dynamics and NOx emissions were found to be significant.
