Abstract : This patent discusses a device for controlling the rate of fuel generation in a solid fuel ramjet engine having a translating tube within the fuel grain and air inlet for continuously changing the distribution of air over the fuel grain in response to air mass flow. The distribution of air effects the aerodynamic shear interaction between the air and solid fuel which causes a change in burn rate.
