  • Content Description: Report presenting the suggestion of an engine configuration that is intended to minimize difficulties caused by exhaust products that are expected to adhere to stationary parts but not rotating parts and exploit the high reactivity of fuel. Component efficiencies of the engine are assigned and its performance is compared with that of a single-stage turbine engine. Results regarding the effect of reaction-nozzle-jet angle, effect of turbine-exit axial Mach number, comparison of rotojet and turbojet performance, and performance of fixed-geometry rotojet engine are provided.
