Abstract: AbstractWe developed a rotary valve for a pulse detonation engine (PDE), and confirmed its basic characteristics and performance. In a square cross-section combustor, we visualized a multi-shot of a pulse detonation rocket engine (PDRE) cycle at an operation frequency of 160 Hz by using a high-speed camera (time resolution: 3.33 μsec, space resolution: 0.4 mm) and a Schlieren method.The propellant filling process and the purge process were confirmed, and each process was modeled.Moreover, we confirmed the pro…
