Abstract:

A new, more efficient and economical facility which is capable of simulating flight Mach number less than 7 of pulse combustion and short duration more than 30 ms was conceived and built two years ago in CARDC, based on our original experience in short duration techniques for simulating exhaust plumes at high altitude. Preliminary experimental results from hundreds of tests of combustor and model engine with fuel of hydrogen and hydrocarbon demonstrate that this kind of facility is suitable for scramjet research.
