Abstract
PROPOSED HERE IS A DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF REDUCE COMPRESSOR REEQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFIC FUEL CONSUMPTION WHILE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING THE THRUST COEFFICIENT. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS BASEED ON PRELIMINARY IN FUEL CONSUMPTION WITH AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE INCREASE IN THRUST COEFFICIENTS. COMPREHENSIVE PARAMETRIC STUDIES WILL BE PERFORMED OF OPTIMUM AND OFF DESIGN PERFORMANCE OF GAS DEVICES. CONFIGURATIONS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSIDERATION COMPONENTS WITH THE LATTER HAVING TRANSVERSE TRANSIENT DETONATION WAVES WHOSE FREQUENCY IWLL BE ESTIMATEED THEORETICALLY AND CHECKED EXPERIMENTALLY IN A TEST RIG. RECOMBINATION OF THE TWO STREAMS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR A RANGE OF SYSTEMS, INCLUDING EJECTORS, COMPREX-TYPE DEVICES AND SHOCK WAVES. FINAL REPORT WILL SUMMARIZE THE THEORETICAL STUDIES, PARAMETRIC ANALYSES AND WILL OUTLINE A PROGRAM FOR A PROOF OF CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION STUDY.
