The program for solving one-dimensional unsteady flow by the field method of characteristics was developed further in a form suitable for pulse combustors designed for boiler application to be analysed. A pulse combustor was simulated on the pulse generating rig to optimise a smoothing circuit design and the experiments indicated that static pressure gains of up to 16% can be obtained. Results obtained from running an actual combustor are used to refine the assumptions made in the program and it is shown that a satisfactory agreement can be achieved between predicted and measured values.
