During an investigation in an altitude chamber, the altitude performance characteristics of two dissimilar flame-holder and fuel-system configurations were evaluated in a short afterburner. One configuration had a double annular V-gutter flame holder with fuel injectors located several inches upstream. The other had a double annular H-gutter flame holder and an additional annular V-gutter located a few inches downstream with the fuel injectors located immediately upstream of the H-gutter flame holder.
