Ethanol Centrifugal Turbojet (1996)

During the build of the previous kerosene centrifugal turbojet, I built 2 or 3 of each part.  This engine was assembled from the second set of parts.

The design intent of this engine was to improve on the kerosene centrifugal turbojet and evaluate the performance of a small ethanol can-annular chamber while experimenting with several different prototype turbine inlet nozzles.   Overall engine performance was similar to the previous kerosene engine.  This engine was my first can-annular engine.
