Very very interesting, you guys really know your stuff, MD11Engineer
, I am impressed.
"breaks up and vaporizes the fuel before burning
Like a cleaning solution mistifier or perfume bottle spray?
"After the engine is started the ignitor is turned off
I heard this process is continuous during landing to prevent a flameout, I image that would be pretty bad if the engines shutdown at that particular instance.
"The airflow from the compressor is too fast to sustain a combustion.
If this is the case with a jet, how does a ramjet operate at all?
"Addition air is being let into the liner through holes in the wall in this zone to prevent direct contact of the very hot flame with the the liner
Maybe it is me, but this gives me the visual of a vacuum within the engine core and the fuel ends up getting sucked into the flow, like a venturi tube, am I right?
This stuff give real insight to what I was thinking, I was trying to apply this to the ideas of pulse detonation enignes with respect to the burn process, I figured thy would have injectors that sprayed similarly even though one was continuous and the other was pulsed continual.
The thing about the vaporizing with high pressure confirmed my belief about an experiment I did with gasoline in a Windex cleaner bottle and I sprayed it into the air and ignited it with a lit-match at the end of a yard stick, the result was noisy but made sense to me. If this explosion was captured in a cone there should be a force resultant perpindicular to the base.
I have yet to do that, all I have done was run a dopey ramjet made of twin shell aluminum tubes and a vacuum cleaner fan and a few ounces of Octane -- a ducted rocket if you will. I have had this pulsed ramjet engine concept for a while and I'm trying to test it before I graduate.
Anyway, thank for all the responses and I will try to get that one book.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
