The ThermoReactor

The Thermo-réacteur

How to make something rectangular while starting from something circular (conduit)? Nothing simpler: it is necessary that “the rectangular one speaks the same rectangular language “…. Because beyond the allegory, it seemed much more effective for the molecule of air leaving the leading edge of the front Aerofoil and going towards the trailing edge of the back Aerofoil, that its course is the simplest possible by avoiding, as far as possible, all the deviations like, barriers, gyratory directions, and other meetings of the 3rd type.
Therefore, it remained us to imagine an engine rather linear who would combine the advantages of the Turbojet to those of the Ramjet. We will call it: The Thermo Reactor !
The Thermo reactor is composed of an air inlet with variable geometry adapted to the take-off and landing modes, of a Pallet Compressor which has the advantage of precisely presenting a rectangular inlet, of a Tank which would store in transient a mass of air to the pressure P2 = k. P1.

Part of this compressed air is then directed, via a control valve, to the inlet of the combustion chamber of the combustion of the Secondary Engine which will function like a “simple” but effective Turbo reactor, and whose essential mission is to activate a Turbine or Paddle wheel (like those used to propel the old paddle steamers…), in order to actuate the Pallet Compressor. Of course, nothing prevents from also profiting from the blowing at outlet of this Secondary Engine for a complement of lift.
During this time, another fraction of the air under pressure is directed - always via control valves -, towards the Principal combustion chamber of the engine whose burned gases will slacken directly and without meeting obstacle (rectifying, turbine), then being able to take the identity - for this only part - of a Ramjet. In addition, this main engine is also wrapped of a second flow of “fresh” air qualified of Double Flow which, more than taking part in the general propulsion, will be partly used for the cooling of the conduit and another combustion chamber, but also to intercalate itself between very hot gases and the Xtrados of the back Aerofoil.

Remainder, in order to extend the lifespan of this back Aerofoil, an arrival of fresh air is arranged in the low part of the front Aerofoil particularly active in the “Cruising” mode. What will not prevent, in the take off mode (at the point fixes), a notable flow of this air thanks to the blowing due to the drive by viscosity.
