Slow Mo Pulse Jet Engine

Featured Video Play Icon

Pulse jet engines rely on their shape to maintain combustion without moving parts. The pressure waves that travel through the engine pump fresh oxygen into the combustion chamber and then ignite it with exhaust remaining from the last cycle. In this Slow Mo Guys video, we get to see that process in action. It’s a pretty neat view of combustion in a working engine, but these guys are definitely not going to win any awards for safety measures. Seriously, don’t try this at home!
