  1. Large Volume Plasmas for Improved Scramjet Cold Start

    SBC: FGC Plasma Solutions LLC            Topic: AF191005

    A key challenge in scramjet-powered vehicles is ensuring reliable cold start and efficient combustion on hydrocarbon fuels such as JP-10. Ignition delay times for these logistics-friendly hydrocarbons, exceeding 10 ms at 1 bar and T=700 K, are an order of magnitude higher than the combustor residence times. These challenges are especially acute for combined cycle powered hypersonic vehicles where ...
