OK, I believe that pulse detonation-jet hybrids will become the engines of the future for aviation. What do you guys think?

Jetsetter.....I believe and its of my own opinion that this engine type is already in use.

That wasn't really a real pulse detonation engine.

I think you are talking about the Aurora spy plane. I dont think thoughs donut on a rope contrails are from a pulse detonation engine. I believe the type of engine that the Aurora would use would leave a contrial with the donuts alot closer toghther. The pulse detonation fires at about 80 times a second.

PULSE ENGINE, IS A PULSE ENGINE. "Tech" of that pulse is secondary.


I really dont give a..


*note*

Btw.. one would think that a rocket engine would be much more useful, as it doesnt give "80 detonations per sec" but continiuos trusht..

ACtually it's much better to have pulse detonations. More power.

Even the Nazi's knew this. They had an engine that fired repeatedly over and over again.....

Pulsing likely means more fuel efficiency too, therefore more range.

It may also mean an engine that has a longer life, eg. less stresses?

does anyone know if this is the case?

How would a pulsing-type of thrust induce less stress on an engine? If anything, there would be more stress induced from the constant intertial changes that wouldn't be present under constant-thrust circumstances.... i.e. me smacking your back 80 times a second to move you hurts a lot less than me just pushing you.

Yeah that's right! Why let the government guys and the corporate geeks have all the fun.

I live in Rio Vista Ca. I looked up and saw some strange contrails , nothing the likes I've never seen before. About a dozen puffs in a line from large to large to small from north to south over Travis A.F. base. I did'nt hear or see any thing !!!!!This happenin Oct. Any body know about IT?
