dc.description.abstractA dual, axially-in-line, side-dump, liquid-fueled ramjet combustor was designed and tested with varying fuel-air ratios, atomizer types, and air distributions between the two inlets. Particle size distributions produced by the atomizers were measured at the inlet duct plane. When operated in a contra- flow direction, all of the atomizers produced excellent atomization with a Sauter mean diameter less than 14 microns. The dual, in-line inlets provided improved flammability limits and combustion efficiencies at lean fuel-air ratios when compared to single side-dump performance. Direct injection of approximately 20% of the fuel flow into the dome region was found to provide improved lean flammability limits for the single side-dump, but was not required with the dual inlets. The fuel distribution in the inlet duct required for good flammability limits and combustion efficiency was opposite to that required to prevent pressure oscillations, indicating that a dump plane aero-grid will often be necessary. A dump angle of 45 deg resulted in lower than desired combustion efficiencies, apparently due to poor mixing with the air from the aft inlet.en_US
