Ramjet engine project

I'm building a Ramjet engine. This jet has no moving parts.

Here are the parts I have so far:




1998 Camaro A4 7.06 @ 96.5 MPH NA 1.47 best 60ft
2010 Camaro Tube Chassis work in progress

I'll have to dig up my Popular Mechanics May 1993 mag. It shows a great diagram of a Ramjet. I think you need to make it neck down towards the exhaust nozzel so you can slow down & compress the incoming air before you add fuel to it. The exhaust nozzel would help the gas expand and ignite.

Project: 89 RS => AX/RR

I believe you are talking about the compressor part. This part is used to slow supersonic air down to subsonic speed. This should not be needed as I will be using my leaf blower and it does not make supersonic wind, although it would be cool if it did
