Eric Beck is the man for chapter and verse on it. Here's some good stuff Mark found - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4628&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=water+injection#p54152
Oh, and augmentors.
"he wrote compactly but clearly" (succinctly) I had to look that one up!
I had heard of water injection for turbine engines, but had not idea it has been experimented with on pulse jet engines. I did read something about running a mixture water and alcohol in one of Maddox valved pulse jet engines. But with little or no success. I read the research mark did. Your right if anyone would know Eric Beck, would.
Good detective work!
