Abstract : A summary is presented of the experimental and theoretical investigations that were carried out on liquid rocket and pulsejet engines. Investigations included the study of flame propagation in jet tubes, characteristics of heat transfer between flowing gases and walls, effects of turbulence in pulsating jet and rocket engines, the development of recording instruments, study of drag characteristics of pulsejet engines and investigation fo reciprocating and rotating valve mechanisms. Theoretical and observed results of these studies are included.
