Abstract: front page image
(EN)Combustion devices described herein comprise a compliant combustion chamber wall or segment. The compliant segment deforms during combustion in the combustion chamber. Some devices may include a compliant wall configured to stretch responsive to pressure generated by combustion of a fuel in the combustion chamber. A coupling portion translates deformation of the compliant segment or wall into mechanical output. One or more ports are configured to inlet an oxygen source and fuel into the combustion chamber and to outlet exhaust gases from the combustion chamber.
(FR)L'invention concerne des dispositifs de combustion présentant une paroi ou un segment de chambre de combustion flexible. Le segment flexible se déforme dans la chambre de combustion pendant la combustion. Certains dispositifs peuvent présenter une paroi flexible configurée pour se dilater sous l'effet d'une pression générée par combustion d'un combustible dans la chambre de combustion. Une partie de couplage transforme la déformation du segment ou paroi flexible en sortie mécanique. Un ou plusieurs orifices sont configurés pour l'admission d'une source d'oxygène et de combustible dans la chambre de combustion et pour l'évacuation de gaz de combustion de la chambre de combustion.
