The simulation was performed before experimental results were available and was intended as an aid to the design of the hardware. The mean exit temperature was 1328 kelvin, but there was significant variation of temperature seen over the exit plane. Poor mixing gives 180 parts per million of nitrogen oxides at the exit, mainly in the two central recirculation zones. In the simulation, the flame did not extend back up the inlet nozzles.
