This engineering reports the design construction and analysis of a pulsejet engine to achieve
static thrust. An engine was designed using available theory. Following a delay due to ignition
system problems, the completed engine was tested extensively in an attempt to achieve static
thrust. Various sizes of pulsejets are used to study the effects of heavy liquid fuels like
kerosene and military grade JP-8. A pulsejet According to the design is constructed, is used
with gasoline to verify data acquisition techniques, and attempts are made to use LPG to fuel
the jet to prove the viability of using LPG to power pulsejet engines. A large valved pulsejet,
predicted to deliver 21 lbs of thrust, is designed to be used with LPG for initial testing to prove
the feasibility of using such a propulsion device for personal troop transport. A 25 cm valveless
pulsejet is designed, fabricated, and tested using LPG to determine if such an engine is practical
for propelling a small, high speed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for military application.
Dimensions are calculated by using thrust by Theoretical calculations .
