Boreham, Bruce William
A theory of operation has been derived for a proposed Travelling
Conduction Wave accelerator, which predicts that such a device would be
capable of operating both as a medium thrust - high specific impulse space
propulsion device, with round trip times to Mars of as low as one month, and
as a hypersonic wind tunnel capable of simulating conditions over a major
portion of the reentry corridor.
A simple experiment designed to test this theory resulted in good
agreement between the theory...[Show more]
