—The thermal efficiency of an aircraft turbofan engine is related to combustion efficiency.It is net output thrust power to total input fuel energy of the combustor.However, net heat effects on thermal efficiency and net heat is related to combustion efficiency.Furthermore, specifying combustion efficiency has a key role inestimating emission indices. In this study, the combustion efficiency of a turbofan engine combustor is analyzed by MATLAB. In the program codes,the basic combustion equilibrium is analyzed for carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, nitrogen oxide, nitric oxide and water.As a conclusion, researchers examinethe relationship between combustion efficiency and exhaust gas emissions.
