Combustion processes in propulsion : control, noise, and pulse detonation by G. D Roy( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chemical propulsion comprises the science and technology of using chemical reactions of any kind to create thrust and thereby propel a vehicle or object to a desired acceleration and speed. This book focuses on recent advances in the design of very highly efficient, low-pollution-emitting propulsion systems, as well as advances in testing, diagnostics and analysis. It offers unique coverage of Pulse Detonation Engines, which add tremendous power to jet thrust by combining high pressure with ignition of the air/fuel mixture. Readers will learn about the advances in the reduction of jet noise and toxic fuel emissionssomething that is being heavily regulated by relevant government agencies. * Lead editor is one of the world's foremost combustion researchers, with contributions from some of the world's leading researchers in combustion engineering * Covers all major areas of chemical propulsion-from combustion measurement, analysis and simulation, to advanced control of combustion processes, to noise and emission control * Includes important information on advanced technologies for reducing jet engine noise and hazardous fuel combustion emissions
Advances in chemical propulsion : science to technology by G. D Roy( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advances in chemical propulsion: science to technology" reports on the progress achieved by the outstanding team of scientists and engineers participating in the Office of Naval Research (ONR) propulsion program. Its chapters, each written by the scientists who performed the research, cover all aspects of the combustion process, from chemical synthesis to reaction pathways of the fuel, from combustor performance to the reduction of emissions, from the sooting problem to thrust vectoring, and from diagnostics to control. They discuss the relevant issues, describe the approach used and the results obtained, and show how the findings can be extended to practical applications. Richly illustrated and carefully edited for clarity, uniformity, and readability, "Advances in chemical propulsion" offers a comprehensive survey of the field, from pre- to post-combustion. It suggests directions for new research efforts and reflects the state-of-the-art technologies and issues that have a direct impact on combustion systems, both present and future

Confined detonations and pulse detonation engines( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current focus on utilizing detonations for air-breathing propulsion has shifted from long-term studies of the possibility of fuel energy transformation in stabilized oblique detonation waves to investigations and practical development of propulsion engines operating on propagating detonations in a pulse mode. Contrary to the oblique-detonation concept that is applicable to hypersonic flight at velocities comparable or higher than the Chapman-Jouguet detonation velocity of the fuel-air mixture, the concept of a pulse detonation engine (PDE) is attractive for both subsonic and supersonic flight with the PDE as a main propulsion unit or as an afterburner in turbojet or turbofan propulsion system. In particular, PDE-based propulsion is attractive for flight Mach number up to about 4. Within this range of Mach number, solid rocket motors are known to be very efficient in terms of simplicity and high-speed capability, but they have a limited powered range. Turbojet and turbofan engines, due to their high specific impulse, provide longer range and heavier payloads, but at flight Mach number exceeding 2-3, they get too expensive. Ramjets and ducted rockets designed for flight Mach number up to 4 require solid rocket boosters to accelerate them to the ramjet take over speed, which increase the complexity and volume of a propulsion system. Combined-cycle engines, such as turborockets or turboramjets, are also very complex and expensive for similar applications
