Radical Farming in Scramjets
This paper outlines the theory of radical farming in scramjets and describes the experimental scramjet model that was designed to investigate it. Experiments were conducted at two conditions; a 3MJ/kg condition corresponding to Mach 7.9 flight at an altitude of 24km and a 4MJ/kg condition corresponding to Mach 9.1 flight at an altitude of 32km. The results are presented as pressure distributions on the flowpath wall and specific impulse estimates.
