Abstract:

Pulsed detonation engines have the potential to provide thrust over a wide operating range for a fraction of the cost of conventional turbine engines. These promised returns have given rise to several vigorous research programs in academia, industry, and government labs. To capture the uhra-fast events composing a detonation wave. researchers are forced to use megahenz range data acquisition systems for relatively long testing intervals. producing gigabytes of purely numeric test data. Since human inspection of such enormous data sets is virtually impossible, a computational framework of highly automated analysis tools is necessary to facilitate the interpretation and analysis of pulsed detonation engine experiments.
