Abstract:

There have been studies on hydrocarbon-fueled vehicle concept in a range of Mach numbers. It is assumed that the upper bounds of using hydrocarbon fuels lie between Mach numbers 6-8. Many investigations of scramjets with a hydrogen fuel on models in wind tunnels of are known. But only few works are known, which concerned the study of hydrocarbon fuel combustion and especially combustion of liquid kerosene. Therefore, the investigation of liquid fuel combustion is very important. It is necessary to evaluate the possibility of full engine model tests in a hot-shot wind tunnel under flight conditions.
