Navy Looks To Rotating Detonation Engines To Improve Fuel Consumption
2012-11-02 12:49:58

U.S. Naval Research Laboratory With its strong dependence on gas-turbine engines for propulsion, the U.S. Navy is always looking for ways to improve the fuel consumption of these engines. At the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), scientists are studying the complex physics of Rotating Detonation Engines (RDEs) which offer the potential for high dollar savings by way of reduced fuel consumption in gas-turbine engines, explains Dr. Kazhikathra Kailasanath, who heads NRL's Laboratories for...

2012-10-25 07:49:43

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online On August 14, 2012 the US Air Force conducted a scheduled test flight of its experimental X-51A Waverider aircraft. But the test ended in failure, with the plane crashing into the Pacific Ocean. Details of the failed flight were not provided at the time, and it was unclear if experiments would continue. Now, more than 2 months after that failed test, the Air Force has come forward and explained why the experimental hypersonic...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The Air Force's new aircraft of the future crashed during a hypersonic test flight, hitting a speed bump in the future of creating quick flights from New York to London. The X-51A WaveRider was designed to reach Mach 6, or 3,600 mph, after being dropped from a B-52 bomber. The aircraft underwent a test on Tuesday, and was brought out off the Southern California coast to experience a few minutes of flying at hypersonic speeds....

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The next generation of flight is undergoing a test tomorrow over the Pacific Ocean, paving the way for non-stop Paris trips in just a few hours in the future. The X-51A WaveRider is being prepared at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert. This aircraft could take you from New York to London in less than an hour. The experimental aircraft uses a "scramjet" engine that allows it to travel at hypersonic speeds, reaching Mach 4.5...


Word of the Day
monteith
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
