Title: Device for improved air and fuel distribution to a combustor

Abstract

A flow conditioning device for a can annular gas turbine engine, including a plurality of flow elements disposed in a compressed air flow path leading to a combustor, configured such that relative adjustment of at least one flow directing element with respect to an adjacent flow directing element during operation of the gas turbine engine is effective to adjust a level of choking of the compressed air flow path.
