Description: Note presenting the results of a preliminary study of combustion in flowing gases and apparatus for obtaining high rates of heat release per unit volume of combustion space are described. Tests were made over a wide range of fuel-air ratios, inlet-mixture velocities, and electrical heat inputs, using propane gas as the fuel. Results indicate that the greater the surface-volume ratio, or the greater the amount of heat addible to the gas stream, the greater the inlet-mixture velocity at which appreciable combustion can be obtained.
