Description: An investigation on various can-type burners in a Bumblebee 18-inch ram jet under controlled conditions of pressure altitude and ram pressure ratio was conducted in the NACA Lewis altitude wind tunnel with kerosene as fuel. The performance of the following can-type burner configurations was better than that of the other burner configurations investigated: (1) a flame holder having a two-pitch alinement of perforations, 0.07-inch-wide cooling slots, and an arrangement of fuel nozzles located within an annulus having a mean radius of 7.24 inches; and (2) a flame holder having a zero-pitch alinement of perforations, 0.16-inch-wide cooling slots, and an annulus of fuel nozzles having a mean radius of 6.89 inches.
