A pulse detonation cluster includes a cluster housing and a plurality of pulse detonation engines mounted within the housing. Each pulse detonation engine has an inner tubular housing rigidly and concentrically mounted within a cylindrical bore of an outer tubular housing. The inner housing has a plurality of inner housing ports, and the outer housing has a plurality of outer housing ports. A detonation chamber is formed in the annulus between the inner housing and the outer housing. An outer valve sleeve is rotatably mounted to the outer housing for sel...
1. An aircraft having wings and a fuselage comprising:a pulse detonation cluster having a cluster housing and a plurality of pulse detonation engines mounted within the cluster housing, each engine having a detonation chamber and at least one valve for admitting air to the detonation chamber, the pulse detonation cluster also having a common drive member driven by an external drive system, the common drive member simultaneously moving the valves of the pulse detonation engines; a fuel injection system carried by the aircraft for delivering fuel to each o...
