Abstract
ADVANCED RAMJET ENGINES ARE EXPECTED TO BURN HIGHER ENERGY-HIGHER DENSITY FUELS SUCH AS BORON, CARBON, AND METALS MIXED WITH LIQUID FUELS IN A SLURRY FORM. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR DETERMINING PERFORMANCE OF RAMJETS IS FUEL DROPLET FORMATION AND DROPLET SIZE DISTRIBUTION. RECENT PROJECTS HAVE STUDIES THE EFFECTS OF INJECTANT VISCOSITY, SURFACE TENSION, AND PARTICLE LOADING ON PENETRATION, BREAK-UP, AND ATOMIZATION OF TRANSVERSE LIQUID AND SLURRY JETS. HOWEVER, NONE OF THESE PROJECTS CONSIDERED NEW INJECTOR DESIGNS AND THEIR EFFECTS ON ATOMIZATION. THIS PROJECT PROMISES TO DESIGN, AND DEVELOP NEW SLURRY FUEL INJECTORS, AND TO CONDUCT EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF EFFECT OF INJECTOR DESIGNS ON INJECTANT ATOMIZATION AND COMBUSTION IN CROSS FLOWS.
