Abstract: Pulse detonation engines (PDEs) are the latest technology under development in the propulsion industries and it is going to be in the near future of the air vehicle propulsion system. Pulse detonation engines are the highly efficient engine due to its high thrust to weight ratio. The operating cycle of pulse detonation engine basically consists of mixing of air and fuel, combustion, blowdown and purging. among all of the above-stated phenomena the combustion process in pulse detonation engine is of utmost importance. In the practical system, the initiation of the detonation wave in the detonation tube is the combination of multiphase combustion phenomenon. In the present paper, a review of the various computational analysis addressing the detonation mode of combustion in a pulse detonation engine has been discussed.
Keywords: Pulse Detonation Engine (PDE), Deflagration to Detonation Transition (DDT), Shchelkin Spiral, Blokage Ratio (BR).
