ENGINE CONCEPT - SCRAMJETS

Scramjet engines (Supercombustion Ramjet) engines burn in the supersonic range and are being and are being researched for approach speeds above Mach 5. Test flights have demonstrated the principle of operation, but no viable engine is currently currently no viable engine is officially in service.

Claims:
Scramjet engines (Supercombustion Ramjet) engines burn in the supersonic range and are engine concept, an advanced multiple-flow principle, such as that used in e.g. in turbofan engines, is transferred to a scramjet. engine. The aim is to increase the net thrust and to enlarge possible combustion chamber combustion chamber geometries can be enlarged. Further measures are aimed at to improve the heat balance. For ignition in the chamber is an innovative combination of microwaves and metal metal particles is planned. This ignition system avoids aerodynamic losses and adapts the ignition to the complex pressure shocks. adapted. and are being researched for approach speeds above Mach 5. Test flights have demonstrated the principle of operation, but no viable engine is currently currently no viable engine is officially in service.
