The results of analytical and experimental investigations of the performance of an explosion-cycle combustion chamber are presented. Calculated and experimentally determined explosion-pressure ratios obtained in a combustion chamber with a timed inlet valve and several fixed-area exhaust nozzles are presented over a range of fuel-air ratios.
