Abstract:

Flame studies were made to obtain information useful in determining fundamental parameters needed in development of flame propagation theory for both engine designs. Work is progressing on studies of specific heat of steel at high temperature change rates and of nonlinear heat conduction. Tests were run on Mark 1 pulse jet to determine effect of varying fundamental parameters. Pressure, temperature, and fluid velocity measurement instruments have been constructed and are being tested. Analysis of nonsteady flow around pulse jet tube has begun.
