Due to its simplicity, the pulsejet may be an ideal micro propulsion system. In this paper, modern experimental and computational methods were used to study a 50-centimeter pulsejet to develop an understanding of how various inlets, exhaust sizes and free stream velocity effect the overall performance of the jet. Experimentally, pressure and temperature were measured at several axial locations under different fuel flow rates for different geometries. Simulations were made with the same geometries and fuel flow rate using CFX to develop further understanding of the factors that affect the performance of pulsejet.
