The thrust performance and heat transfer in an ethylene-oxygen single tube pulse detonation rocket (PDR), were analyzed. The thrust data were obtained by two measurement devices including, a laser displacement sensor and a load cell. The time average thrusts were 122.2 N (10 Hz) and 130.3 N (12.5 Hz), which were corresponding to 293.7 and 321.2 seconds of effective specific impulses, respectively. It was found that the total heat flux in the wall of the PDR tubes was 400 kW/m2.
