Distributed initiation (e.g., multipoint or continuous) is utilized to obtain constant volume-like combustion performance in a pulse combustion device in the absence of detonation. A number of such devices may be utilized as turbine engine combustors.
What is claimed is: 1. A pulse combustion device comprising: a vessel having a gas inlet and a gas outlet; a valve for opening and closing the inlet to admit a charge of gas; and means for producing a distributed ignition of said gas along a flow path within the vessel to initiate combustion of said gas, the combustion occurring substantially via deflagration. 2. The device of claim 1 wherein the vessel has a length along a flow path between the inlet and outlet, said length being at least 1.5 times a square root of a median cross-sectional area. 3...
