The paper presents some results regarding the identification of a turbojet engine’s optimal combustion chamber geometry, characterized by small dimensions, with enhanced possibilities for air and fuel mixture circulation in the primary combustion zone in order to obtain good residence time in the flame tube, higher turbulence and optimal radial temperature distribution. Also, it deals with the identification of some solutions of the differential equation for reduced temperature under imposed initial conditions. Some models of combustion numerical computations have been applied, as presented by the specialized documentation, to establish the combustion rate and flame speed for laminar combustion. The geometry of a combustion chamber, with twenty-four injectors and size comparable to a real combustion chamber, has been created in order to obtain the speed and temperature flow field within the flame tube. The major conclusion of the current research is that the distribution of holes within the liner does not need to be symmetric, which means that they have to be positioned in such as a manner as to ensure a higher degree of turbulence in the combustion primary zone and a helical shape of stream lines in the proximity of the walls of the flame tube.
