ONERA initiated a research ramjet program with the aim of improving the methodology for ramjet combustion chamber design and tuning by using validated CFD codes. This paper describes the ramjet research model designed and tested in order to set-up an experimental database for non-reacting and reacting flow cases. Experimental results such as.
The scramjet engine is where the future of aerospace is headed. Scramjet engines fill the gap between highly efficient turbojets and the high speed of rocket engines. To fully understand what a SCRAMJET, or Supersonic Combustion Ramjet, is one must first know the definition of a ramjet. A ramjet is an air-breathing jet engine.
