Abstract:

This project has investigated the fundamental scaling laws for supersonic combustion in scramjets flying at Mach 8. Developing these laws is critical for successfully transitioning small-scale ground test and flight experiment data to the design of full-scale scramjet vehicles. To achieve this, the project has employed state-of-the-art diagnostics to investigate inlet-injection radical farming supersonic combustion in a shock tunnel over a wide range of dynamic pressures at flight Mach 8.
