Beginer Advice

What are the basics involved in designing a turbo jet engine. Not one of the KJ-66 style ones but the one the homemade ones like this http://www.nyethermodynamics.com/nt3/index.html What I don't understand is how you get the combustion camber size, volume, and holes in the flame holder. Thanks for t...

Air speed

Anyone have any ideas about the speed air moving thru the intake of a pulse jet. Is it related to the flame speed? Which would be what? Any ideas would be great.

Re: Fuel

Ben, thats a good point, $2 vs. $25 per gallon. I really was just wondering if R/C car fuel could be used. Thanks for yall's two cents.

Re: Fuel

Okay then, what about pure nitromethane? I can get it for about $25.00 per gallon.

Fuel

Would it be possible to run a pulsejet on R/C car fuel? I think that it is a light oil mixed with nitromethane (top fuel) and is availbe in mixtures from 0% nitromethane to 60% nitromethane.

Re: Reynst build

Re: What not to do!

Okay, if y'all want to trade electricity stories, here's one. When I was about 12, I got my first laser, it was a HeNe tube laser.
