Luc, Hooo...one more thing, I guees you have figured that one out... But in case you need to know, there is alot of air coming out of the 3rd stage at max power. During warm-up, the intake stack is capable of maintaining the flame front inside. But this thing spit like a dragon at max power. One thi...

Viv, If the two peeks coincided but were antiphase they would cancell and reduce the the size of the resultant not increase it. I don't get it. Don't the peaks shown at ~431 and ~460hz on the spectral curve correspond to the peak of the sound wave (in phase) and the troughs in between correspond to ...

Viv, Luc, OK. I will try to give some more acoustic imput after my debacle with the tuning calcs with the Riley Manual info. I have attached a file showing Luc's engine's sound file as Viv just posted, but with my own comments. Note that the Third harmonic is really close to and unknown second sourc...

Luc wrote: we ran during summer time but at that time, we had serious problems with our LoadCell set-up, but the values recorded then, never was close to the 130 lbs. expected. Also remember over a month ago, we ran the engine inside (@ 70 °F) but still had that poor 45 lbs. of thrust. Even if I be...

Hi Luc, Have you run your tests in the Summertime? Your low jet temps got me thinking (I know, a dangerous thing). While I don't think this is THE problem, low tank temps can certainly be A problem. Low tank temps mean somewhat lower fuel jet velocity which means slighly misadjusted 1st stage tuning...

Danger! Danger! Danger! (well, maybe not that severe) Okey ... I think we are not on the same values at all. But I am not saying I am right. Okey, here are the numbers Viv and I talk about this morning. Luc, Your numbers are correct. I was using the equation out of Riley's manual, and IT IS WRONG!!!...

Hi! I'm not an Acoustic Expert, but I play one on TV! ;o) Quick observations: Using the frequency equations from the manual, I have calculated resonences from the test run to compare to the sound file. See attached Excel file below: Note: These values are incorrect!!! See post below Stage 1 Resonenc...

Does anyone have any sound recordings or video (w/sound) of a "working" Gluey, ANY model? If we have a recording of a "good" engine (again ANY model) then we can back out what is going on so that we know EXACTLY what to look for in the 130R recordings. By working model, I mean one that develops clos...

I've been following the sound recording conversation and wanted to add some things. First, there has been talk of using a FFT Spectral analysis to look at the waveform to find resonent frequencies. Does anyone on this list have the software and the expertese to do this? Is there a specific file form...
