Abstract : Investigations were conducted to determine flame velocity with and without grid, possible change in normal combustion velocity by varying the percentage composition of the mixture, effect on high flame speed by varying grid design and effect on the fast flame by varying the tube length. The grids are found to produce a flame of high velocity. The effect of grid design, tube length, and mixture composition on the shape of the flame front position are shown in time curves. It is thought that this information when used in connection with pressure, temperature, and stream velocity will be useful in understanding pulsejet engines.
