Abstract : A segmented, zoned fuel injection system for use within the entrance area of a combustor. The fuel injection system has a plurality of spray bars formed as part of closely-spaced apart segments. The spray bars are zoned to permit additional control of profile and flow rate of fuel injected into the combustor. This design permits radial profile control within the combustor, maintains higher efficiency at low fuel flows and easy replacement and/or maintenance of the components thereof. (Author)
