Abstract:

The development of two experimental burners was completed as part of a project to evaluate the suitability of the use of converted reciprocating engine turbochargers as expendable jet engines for remotely piloted vehicles. As a result of analytic studies, Burner A was constructed as a reverse flow burner and was designed to accept a mass flow up to 0.75 lbmsec. Burner B was also reverse and designed for a mass flow up to 1.5 lbmsec. Both burners operated successfully on their respective turbochargers.
