Abstract : A solid particle fuel is introduced into a reaction zone of a continuous flow conduit between pump and turbine flow sections thereof within a turbojet engine. The fuel reacts on contact with the motive liquid within the reaction zone and produces bubbles of a non-condensible gas as a reaction product during rotation of the engine rotor to which pump and turbine blading is fixed within the pump and turbine flow sections of the conduit.
