Abstract:

GHKN Engineering, LLC teamed with Aerojet Recmond, proposes to build and test a CDRE with a number of fuels and oxidizers. Included in the proposal test program is thrust measurement, which together with mass flow measurement will be used to evalute CDRE performance, (and efficiency), of detonation combustion in these devices. The engine planned for testing was designed by GHKN under the Phase I program and will be fabricated by GHKN and hot fire tested at Aerojet's Redmond, Washington rocket test facility. The innovative CDRE design allows testing of multiple injector and mixing configurations. The CDRE tests using pure oxygen or other oxidizers are viewed as a stepping stone to testing of larger air breathing CDE designs which require larger and more elaborate test facilities. The Phase II program is intended to require two years to complete.
