Description: Report investigating the theoretical sea-level performance of an explosion jet-propulsion engine similar to the German flying bomb to show the effects on performance of heat added and supercharging and a comparison was drawn between the performance of the explosion engine and the constant-pressure engine. The explosion engine was found to be more efficient than the constant-pressure engine at compressor pressure ratios below 3.0 when the maximum gas temperature of the constant-pressure engine is 1600 degrees Fahrenheit.
