Ultra-Compact combustion presents an innovative solution to address the demand for increasingly compact, efficient, and low weight aircraft gas turbine engine propulsion systems. An Ultra-Compact Combustor (UCC) operates by diverting a portion of the compressor exit flow into a cavity about the engine outer diameter. Injection into the cavity can be done at an angle to induce bulk circumferential swirl.
