ABSTRACT

The article is devoted to the study of the effect of nanosized additives used for increasing the efficiency of composite fuel of air-jet engines. A virtual model of a real experimental installation — a hypersonic impulse tube — is proposed to optimize experiments on burning fuels. The results of full-scale experiments carried out on a hypersonic pulse tube with the burning of pasty fuel with nanoadditives in a supersonic air flow are presented. Comparison of experimental results and model calculations confirmed the adequacy of the virtual model. It is established that the introduction of nanosized additives in composite fuel significantly improves its characteristics, allowing one to reduce the initiation time of the combustion process of fuel by two-to-three times and to increase the stability of fuel combustion.
