Abstract : Progress made in the development of project Squid, a cooperative program of fundamental research in jet propulsion, is presented. Experimental investigations were continued on jet propulsion engines, including rocket, rocket-ramjet, ramjet, valveless intermittent ramjet, valveless pulsejet, and shrouded pulsejet engines. Studies related to jet propulsion development are reviewed under the subject headings of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, flame propagation, chemical reaction kinetics, spectroscopy of combustion, instrumentation and testing equipment, and heat resistant materials. An outline is given which indicates the various phases of work being conducted by each affiliated university.
