Altitude Test Chamber Investigation of Performance of a 28-Inch Ram-Jet Engine 2: Effects of Gutter Width and Blocked Area on Operating Range and Combustion Efficiency
Description: Altitude-test-chamber investigation of effects of flame-holder blocked area and gutter width on performance of 28-inch diameter ram jet at simulated flight Mach number of 2.0 for altitudes from 40,000 to 55,000 feet was conducted at NACA Lewis laboratory. Ten flame holders investigated covered gutter widths from 1.00 to 2.50 inches and blocked areas from 40.5 to 62.0 percent of combustion-chamber area. Gutter width did not appreciably affect combustion efficiency.
