Abstract : A finlet injector for external burning fuel injection is provided to obtain a higher performance through a combination of more optimum air-to-fuel ratio and better air/fuel mixing. This is done by capturing (mixing with) a greater quantity of air for a given fuel injection pressure and flow rate. The device is thermally protected and, for most flight regimes, has minimum drag.
