PDE propulsion can work from a subsonic regime to hypersonic regimes; this type of engine can have higher thermodynamic efficiency compared to other turbojet or turbofan engines due to the removal of rotating construction elements (compressors and turbines) that can reduce the mass and total cost of propulsion system. The PDE experimental researches focused on both the geometric configuration and the thermo-gas-dynamic flow aspects to prevent uncontrolled self-ignition. This article presents a
