Explain with neat sketch working principle of Ram jet engine
Ramjet has no compressor as the entire compression depends upon compression. Function of supersonic & subsonic difference to convert the kinetic called the ram pressure.
Working:- The air entering into ram jet with supersonic speed is slowed down to sonic velocity in the supersonic diffuser ,increasing air pressure. The air pressure is further increase in the subsonic diffuser increasing also the temperature of air. The diffuser section is designed to get correct ram effect. it’s job is to decrease the velocity & increase pressure of incoming air. The fuel injected into combustion chamber is burned with help of flame igniter. The high pressure and high temperature gases are passed through the nozzle converting into pressure energy into kinetic energy. The high velocity gas leaving the nozzle provide required toward thrust to.
