Description

Report presenting an investigation in the 10- by 10-foot supersonic wind tunnel to evaluate the performance of a shrouded injector burner with perforated domes employed in a 28-inch ramjet using gaseous hydrogen as fuel. Steady-state data were obtained at a pressure altitude of 77,000 feet and zero angle of attack. Results indicated that burning could be initiated under severe distortion conditions and that satisfactory combustor operation was accomplished up to a pressure altitude of 110,000 feet with no adverse effect on combustion efficiency.
