Title: Fuel nozzle assembly with fuel inlet slots

Abstract

The present disclosure is directed to a bundled tube type fuel nozzle assembly. The fuel nozzle assembly includes a fuel plenum body including a forward plate, an aft plate, an outer band that extends between the forward plate and the aft plate and a fuel plenum defined within the fuel plenum body. A plurality of tubes extends through the fuel plenum. Each tube of the plurality of tubes includes an inlet defined along an outer surface of the forward plate and an outlet defined downstream from the inlet. The forward plate defines a plurality of fuel inlet slots that is in fluid communication with the fuel plenum. Each fuel inlet slot extends radially outwardly with respect to an axial centerline of the fuel plenum body along the outer surface of the forward plate.
