Abstract
The phenomenon of pulsating combustion remains one of the least understood forms of combustion. In this thesis, combustion oscillations are classified into the categories of chamber oscillations, system oscillations, and intrinsic oscillations. Two pulsating devices, the pulsejet and the Reynst combustion pot, were studied in some detail. Experimentation was conducted to determine the miniaturization capabilities of the devices. Conclusions were drawn concerning the practicality of size reduction, and applications of the devices were suggested. Areas of possible future research are delineated that would further the development of the devices and their miniaturization.
