INVESTIGATION OF WORKING PROCESSES IN A FLOWING CHANNEL OF RAMJET ENGINE

ABSTRACT
The technique and results of experimental-theoretical study of gas-dynamics, heat transfer and the structure of gas-flow in the flowing channel of a ramjet engine in Mach number range M = (5-7) are presented. The temperature distribution along the flowing channel of a ramjet engine was experimentally obtained. The temperature along the wall of the flowing channel of the axisymmetric model was measured using the developed thermo-probe. Distributions of Mach number and temperature along the symmetry axis of the flowing channel of the model are obtained numerically. Comparison of the numerical and experimentally obtained values of the Mach number showed their qualitative agreement.
