Abstract : A theoretical analysis and calculated results of external burning on a plate, applicable also to practical cases of burning on a cone, are presented. Two constant-pressure-burning cases of practical interest were studied: (1) twodimensional, in which the burning region assumes the shape of a wedge and the pressure rise is confined to the surface on which burning takes place; (2) conical, in which the burning region shape is the frustrum of a cone and the pressure rises extend beyond the burning surface. The basic results are given for Mach numbers from 2 to 20 in a form which shows the fuel economy, essentially the variation of specific force (force per unit fuel flow) with fuel flow density (fuel flow per unit surface). A major conclusion is that with burning on equal surfaces, two-dimensional burning produces a greater specific force than conical burning. (Author)
