Abstract : Theoretical and experimental investigations are being conducted by research institutions on rocket and pulse jet engines operating at supersonic speeds. Flow tests were made in the wind tunnel, and problem of shock waves occurring at supersonic speeds is discussed. Description is given of method of spark propagation in combustion chamber. Information obtained from flame studies was used in determining fundamental parameters for propagation theory.
