Abstract : In connection with liquid rockets and pulse jet engines, progress was made with the schlieren observations of combustion details and flow through the grid of moving-flame tube, with high speed simultaneous schlieren and flame motion pictures of the small transparent walled jet, and with completion of development of pressure and temperature instrumentation. Theoretical investigations have been made in the linearized theory of aero-thermodynamics as applied to flame tubes and to pulse jets. The theoretical study of two and three dimensional non-steady jets was pursued intensively during this period. Further investigations were conducted to develop new alloys to resist pressure, temperature, and erosion conditions existing in propulsion units. Metallurgical, fabrication and design problems involved in cooling rocket and intermittent jet engines by diffusion of fluids through porous metal combustion chamber liners are analyzed.
