The Flameless Combustion (FC) regime is promising to the attainment of lower emissions in gas turbine engines. The well-distributed reactions, with low peak temperatures present in the regime result in lower emissions and acoustic oscillations. However, the attainment of the FC regime on gas turbine engines has not been successful, as most of the previous design attempts failed with respect to combustion efficiency, operational range, or difficulty to integrate in an engine. Along with a novel aircraft concept, a conceptual design of a gas turbine engine with two sequential combustion chambers was presented.1 As the aircraft would allow the use of cryogenic fuels, the first (and main) combustion chamber envisages the use of hydrogen or natural gas. The inter-turbine burner (ITB) is the subsequent chamber, and would operate under the FC regime with conventional fuels.
