This research investigates the effects of inlet dump angle on the size, shape, location and magnitude of recirculation zones for single side dump inlet configuration in a Pulse Detonation Combustor. It also describes the methods and results of hypothesized improvements to the internal flow path of those engines to ensure complete inter-cycle quenching. Additional analysis was conducted to visualize the dispersion of fuel along the feed tube and into the dump region as a means of providing initial validation of the design with respect to appropriate fuel concentration within the geometry.
