Abstract

An engine cooling concept for cylindrical rotating detonation engine which had an injector surface on the combustor side wall has been tested with three combustor length of 21, 30, and 6 mm. Thrust measurement of the cylindrical RDE (24-mm-diameter) was conducted with monitoring K-type thermocouples inserted in combustor wall. Single rotating detonation wave was observed with the combustor length of 30 and 69 mm in this study. Cooling effect due to the propellant injection was confirmed as the nearly saturated temperature response in the combustor side wall. when the chamber length is more than 30 mm, the specific impulse maintained more than 80% of theoretical value assuming sonic condition at the chamber exit. The result indicated that modest combustor length as an efficient thruster exists in the range of 30 to 69 mm.
