An apparatus for deploying an inflatable member, such as a safety bag in a motor vehicle, includes a hydraulic actuator for amplifying the fluid pressure in a combustion chamber, initially generated by a pyrotechnic initiator, and applying the amplified fluid pressure to continuously pressurize a liquid propellant reservoir to magnitudes exceeding the combustion chamber fluid pressure. All of the liquid propellant in the reservoir is then rapidly injected as a continuous stream into the combustion chamber for ignition and sustained combustion, thereby ge...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] Apparatus for deploying an inflatable member, comprising:a housing including a vent passage in fluid flow communication with the inflatable member installed to the housing;a combustion chamber in the housing;an initiator positioned in the housing to generate, upon activation, high temperature gas increasing fluid pressure in the combustion chamber;a reservoir in the housing containing a liquid propellant;a fluid passage connecting the liquid propellant reservoir to the combustion chamber; anda hydraulic actuator responsive to ...
