New Hybrid Design?

It is always better from a power standpoint to release the most energy in the shortest time and the smallest space. (point in case: nuclear bomb)

This means release the most energy of the gases quickly using a burst disk in the smallest space. (compressed in chamber, not overflowing into barrel)

I beg to differ;
There were many experiments I did with a home-made Flamefront Accelerator. If you release most of the energy in the chamber, there is little to no energy left to push the spud down the barrel.

Oh yeah, sorry I do not know what I was thinking in the last post. Oh well no power increase (that I can see). Maybe a slight power decrease. I still like the design.

Yeah, I'd love to see you make it work. Just be careful to make the chamber strong enough for a full flashback.

DR: where can I find out about those flamefront experiments?

You guys realize this is the general design of the pre-DR hybrid, right? The guy pumped propane into a pneumatic along with the air and ignited it with a set of electrodes just in front of a sprinkler valve. It's really closer to a flame thrower than a hybrid.

The only reason I liked this design was because of the absence of a burst disk. I know that the first hybrids used sprinkler valves and such.

dude, yea the pressure from the compressor would push the potato down the barrel after you turned you spin disk switch valve....thingie....w/e the [intercourse] it is.
