Abstract : Progress achieved in Project Squid during the third quarter of 1948 is reported by five academic institutions, which present papers on the various research phases. Studies were continued in the thermodynamic field on flame motions in pulse and rocket engines; temperature dependence of conductivity; water stream analogues for gas motion; gas velocities; continuous-process combustion; combustion in high velocity fuel-oxidant streams; mixing of gas streams; mechanism of nonsteady flow; statical mechanics of non-uniform gases; and internal ballistics of jet engines. Moreover, diversified investigations were continued on: transient thrust, internally coupled pulsejets; valveless intermittent jet engines; cooling aspects; valve mechanisms; instrumentation; properties of materials; heat capacity of steels; and corrosion.
