Experimental studies of an axisymmetric hydrogen-fueled detonation ramjet model 1.05-meter long and 0.31 m in diameter with an expanding annular combustor were performed in a pulse wind tunnel under conditions of approaching air stream Mach number ranging from 4 to 8 with the stagnation temperature of 293 K. In a supersonic air flow entering the combustor, continuous and longitudinally pulsating modes of hydrogen detonation with the corresponding characteristic frequencies of 1250 and 900 Hz were obtained. The maximum measured values of the fuel-based specific impulse and total thrust were 3600 s and 2200 N.
