A pulse detonation engine is provided with several detonation combustors selectively coupled to an air inlet and fuel source by a rotary valve. The rotary valve isolates the steady operation of the air inlet and fuel system from the unsteady nature of the detonation process, and allows the fueling of some of the detonation chambers while detonation occurs in other detonation chambers. The fuel system may use a solid fueled gas generator.
A rotary valve multiple combustor pulse detonation engine comprising: at least two detonation chambers, each having an inlet end and an outlet end; a fuel manifold for supplying fuel from a fuel source to said at least two detonation chambers at said inlet ends; an inlet air duct manifold for supplying air to said at least two detonation chambers at said inlet ends; means for initiating a pulsed supersonic shock wave-triggered detonation combustion wave for initiating detonation in said at least two detonation chambers; and a rotor disk valve having at l...
