Continuous detonation combustion of fuel-air mixtures

Continuous detonation combustion of fuel-air mixtures was performed. In a disk-shaped chamber with a plane radial eddying flow directed from the periphery to the central outlet opening, a rotating detonation wave in which hydrogen, methane, and sprayed liquid fuels (kerosene and diesel fuel) mixed with air were burnt was excited. Previously, a similar process was realized only for fuel-oxygen mixtures.
