Abstract

The research project on pulse detonation engines has been launched in the Key- Laboratory of High Temperature Gas Dynamics of Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, since 2000. The recent progress on the research project is introduced in this paper with a special emphasis on the experiment on the liquid-fueled pulse detonation engine model. To gain basic understanding on the PDE, three PDE test facilities have been set up and the liquid-fueled one uses gasoline as fuel and oxygen as oxidizer, which can be operated at 20 pulses per second now after some improvements on fuel/oxygen mixing, direct detonation ignitions and the PDE cycle timing.
