Description

This invention relates to a combustion chamber particularly adapted for use in the propulsion of rockets or rocket craft. Such chambers are frequently used for combustion of a mixture of liquids, such as gasoline and liquid oxygen, which combustion develops an extremely high temperature, sometimes in excess of 4000˚ F. It is the general object of my present invention to provide an improved construction in a combustion chamber, by which reliable and efficient operation under extreme conditions is assured. I also provide a combustion chamber which is of simple construction and of relatively light weight and which is thereby well adapted for aircraft purposes.
