The results of simulation of the NOx and CO formation in a small-sized gas turbine engine are presented. A comparison of the results of CFD calculations with experimental data showed that calculations in standard three-dimensional formulation in combination with partitioning into a network of reactors can be used to simulate NOx and CO formation. When using the JetSurf 2.0 chemical reaction mechanism, satisfactory agreement between calculated and experimental data is achieved with a number of elementary reactors above several hundreds.
