Aerospace Plane Hydrogen Scramjet Boosting 912071

The results of computational investigations carried out to clarify the possibilities of hydrogen scramjet thrust uprating in hypersonic flight (M >8) by adding to the fuel substances with higher density are presented. Thrust, specific impulse and density impulse are calculated while adding nitrogen, oxygen, water or inert liquated gases. Fuel is injected tangentially to air flow into combustion chamber with high velocity through gas generator nozzles. For scramjet boosting in hypersonic flight it is suggested to add oxygen to stoichiometric part of hydrogen instead of excessive part of hydrogen.
