  • Innovative approaches to fuel-air mixing and combustion in airbreathing hypersonic engines. 

    Macleod, Christopher (British Interplanetary Society. http://www.bis-space.com/products-page/magazines-and-journals/jbis-journal-of-the-british-interplanetary-society/jbis-vol-66-no-0506-may-june-2013/, 2013-06)
    MACLEOD, C., 2013. Innovative approaches to fuel-air mixing and combustion in airbreathing hypersonic engines. JBIS: Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, 66 (5/6), pp. 178-189.
    This paper describes some innovative methods for achieving enhanced fuel-air mixing and combustion in Scramjet-like spaceplane engines. A multimodal approach to the problem is discussed; this involves using several ...
  • Overcoming fuel-air mixing issues with pulsed scramjets and pelletized fuel. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco; Gow, Kenneth S. (British Interplanetary Society http://www.jbis.org.uk/paper.php?p=2015.68.354, 2015-11-01)
    MACLEOD, C., CAPANNI, N.F. and GOW, K.S., 2015. Overcoming fuel-air mixing issues with pulsed scramjets and pelletized fuel. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society [online], Vol 68 (11), pp. 354-362. Available from: http://www.jbis.org.uk/paper.php?p=2015.68.354
    n this paper the concept of a pulsed Scramjet using pelletized fuel is examined. The aim is to overcome the main technical problem inherent in more traditional designs - poor air-fuel mixing. In this new paradigm, airflow ...
  • Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Gow, Kenneth S.; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco (The British Interplanetary Society, 2010)
    MACLEOD, C., GOW, K. S. and CAPANNI, N. F., 2010. Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. The Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), 62 (9), pp. 320-331.
    Electromagnetic Activation (EMA) is an alternative to combustion in Scramjet-like hypersonic engines. The basis of the system was outlined in previous publications. This paper builds on these results and explores some ...
