Attenuation of tangential-pressure oscillations in a liquid-oxygen - n-heptane rocket engine with longitudinal fins

Description: An investigation of the use of fins to prevent high-frequency combustion-pressure oscillations (screaming) in the combustion chamber of a 1000-pound-thrust rocket engine with a chamber pressure of 300 pounds per square inch and using liquid oxygen and n-heptane as propellants. Tangential combustion-pressure oscillations were found to be eliminated with longitudinal fins located in the combustion zone.

Performance of a blunt-lip side inlet with ramp bleed, bypass, and a long constant-area duct ahead of the engine : Mach number 0.66 and 1.5 to 2.1

Description: Unsteady shock-induced separation of the ramp boundary layer was reduced and stabilized more effectively by external perforations than by external or internal slots. At Mach 2.0 peak total-pressure recovery was increased from 0.802 to 0.89 and stable mass-flow range was increased 185 percent over that for the solid ramp. Peak pressure recovery occurred just before instability. The 7 and one-third-diameter duct ahead of the engine reduced large total-pressure distortions but was not as successful for small distortions as obtained with throat bleed. By removing boundary-layer air the bypass nearly recovered the total-pressure loss due to the long duct.
