Abstract : A quarterly progress report is given on teh technical progress attained by Project Squid. Work on flame velocity and combustion has continued mainly with an accumulation of experimental data and theoretical application of these data. An analytical treatment of unsteady flow for compressible fluids is in progress, based upon successive approximations alternating between flow around infinite cylinders and infinite plane. An instrumentation program has been started in view of the expansion of experimental research now contemplated. The simplified gas-dynamical analysis of the pulse jet is in progress of solution, and it will provide a basis for the study of the actual aero-thermodynamical process. Studies of fatigue specimens are being continued, and active work is now under way on temperature distribution studies.
