In the frame of the European Research Program EEFAE (Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Aero-Engine) successfully completed in five years (2000-2005), an advanced low-NOx combustor has been designed and validated for the CLEAN (Component vaLidator for Environmentally-friendly Aero-eNgine) demonstrator. The objectives of the paper are to show an overview of the CLEAN combustor development, such as combustor design, manufacturing and test rig results, and to provide first comparison between a-posteriori CFD analysis Vs. Rig experimental data, useful for a more comprehensive understanding of combustion performance.
