Ramjet prototype (i think its a ram)

Post by endersworld » Sun Oct 16, 2011 10:46 pm

So the other day me and my friend just put together this little project. Our first experiment with jet properties, it uses a small canister of propane, and a small air compressor, both of which are directly fitted to the body of the jet. it looks to me to be running a bit rich, but hey tell me what you think.

First test with incomplete combustion chamber:

With all the fittings secured and jet body fully welded

testing a nozzle/venturi effect

Next i would like to use much more air, perhaps a compressor fan and maybe convert to liquid fuel.
