Luis Mendonca's PDE Project
Editor: The following message was edited somewhat to clarify details lost in translation.
All I will say is true.
I have developed a pulse detonation engine which is very simple in construction, and most of all is very cheap to build. In past years I have developed electronic fuel and ignition systems for the pulse work.
My surprise... pulse combustion doesn't need to be complicated. It's a mechanical wonder that works unbelievably without electronics. We have to enter in the mind of the engine, make it simple and it will work.
It is not a pulse jet engine! It wont burn valves... no rotary valves. One of the prototypes. A small one is a dream engine. You can mount it in a plane, fly it in the atmosphere, go up and to the stratosphere and go out and it will run in space. (This part is theoretical but feasible at low price) and you can turn the aircraft around and come back.
In resume, I really have some things working. At present time I live in a place that people can really see these things working, but have no knowledge or opinion about it, they don't believe in what they can't understand, so there lies the engine in the backyard and it will stay there.
My question! Is there any one interested in developing this kind of engine and aircraft?
