Abstract

A detonation is a combustion wave that propagates at supersonic speed (2∼3 km/s) in a combustible mixture. There are many fundamental studies of detonation waves and detonation engine systems. The detonation cycle has a higher thermal efficiency than a conventional constant-pressure combustion cycle. Therefore, it is expected that a high-efficiency propulsion system can be realized using detonation waves.A rotating detonation engine (RDE) uses continuous detonation propagating at a bottom in an annular combustor. As detonation waves propagate at a supersonic speed only in the bottom region of the RDEs, the combustor can be shortened. However, the combustor needs cooling system due to high heat flux to the combustor wall. In this experimental study, we performed combustion tests of RDE system using gaseous ethylene and oxygen as the propellant. This RDE system performance will also be demonstrated in space environment by the sounding rocket. We measured the combustor pressure, temperatures, heat flus, mass flow rate and thrust. The RDE system used in this study is shown in Figure 1. We performed the long-duration rotating detonation engine combustion tests for at sea level condition. The stable trust histories were obtained.
