Ramjet Engine


What the engine is used for. A ramjet, sometimes called a flying stovepipe, or an athodyd which is an abbreviation of Aero thermodynamic duct. The engine uses the forward motion of itself to compress the incoming air. The engine uses the forward motion of itself to compress the incoming air.

Ramjets cannot produce thrust at zero airspeed so they cannot move an aircraft standing still. Because of that they need an assisted take off like JATO(something for assisted take-off) to accelerate it to a speed where it can produce thrust. Ramjets are most efficient at mach 3 and this type of engines can work up to speeds of mach 6. Ramjets are used in the SR71 Blackbird.
