Methods of introducing and distributing air and fuel in turbojet-engine combustors were evaluated with two fuels, AN-F-32 and AN-F-58. Investigations were made with two single-annulus liners in a one-quarter sector of a 25 1/2-inch-diameter turbojet combustor. Altitude performance data for these combustors are compared with existing data for a production-model double-annulus combustor. Altitude operating limits and combustion efficiencies of both single-annulus combustors were considerably higher than those of the double-annulus combustor; combustion efficiencies were insensitive to changes in fuel-air ratio.
