Abstract:

Wind-tunnel tests are being conducted at supersonic speeds on model diffusers to study flow characteristics and pressure losses in pulse-jet engine. Possibility of representing gas flow conditions by electrical or hydrodynamical experiments is discussed. Work is progressing on investigations of spark propagations in combustion chamber and on studies of catalytic effect on combustion chamber wall materials. Vibration machine and two types of microscope stage furnaces are being constructed for research on temperature and fatigue-resistant materials.
