The problem of combustion-process instability encountered in the design of liquid-fuel rocket engines, air-breathing jet engines, highly forced fireboxes in chemical electric-power plants, and in conducting various types of physical tests and experiments in combustion theory is discussed. A systematic exposition of contemporary theory of the excitation of longitudinal acoustic vibrations by application of heat is presented. The qualitative laws inherent to this type of vibration are given detailed consideration, with information from hydromechanics, acoustics and combustion theory drawn upon extensively for their analysis, with application of the mathematical apparatus of control theory and vibration theory.
