Abstract : The performance of the subsonic combustion ramjet over the range from Mach 3 to 8 is presented, showing the effects of systematic variations in component efficiencies and flight conditions. Fuels considered are hydrogen, ethylene, and pentaborane. Performance predictions in the literature are reviewed and compared, and differences discussed. The present results are included in the comparison. (Author)
