Model of low-thrust pulse detonation device with valveless fuel feed
A model pulse detonation engine of low thrust is designed. A valveless fuel and oxidant feed was used to fill a combustion chamber. The detonation was formed in the flow of mixed fuel and oxidant. The influence of oxidant on the engine operation mode, the influence of ring obstacles and prechambers on deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT), and the influence of fuel on engine output parameters were investigated. Air-hydrogen and air-hydrocarbon mixtures were used.
