  • 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 ...
  • A review of air-fuel mixing and alternative methods in scramjets and scramjet-like engines.

    MACLEOD, C. and GERRARD, C.E. 2016. A review of air-fuel mixing and alternative methods in scramjets and scramjet-like engines. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society [online], 69(4), pages 116-126. Available from: http://www.jbis.org.uk/
    This paper reviews work on two aspects of scramjet and similar ducted hypersonic propulsion. The first of these is air-fuel mixing techniques - the problem of mixing is considered the most intractable in scramjet design. ...
  • 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 ...
