Abstract : An improved swirler assembly prevents flow separation in the diffuser section. An annular swirler layer of air surrounds a linear jet with mixing occurring between these air flows prior to the diffuser section. A center tube through the swirler section provides the linear get which mixes with the swirler flow in a mixing area prior to the diffuser section. (emk)
