Longitudinal combustion instabilities in liquid-fueled ramjet engines have been investigated with attention focused on determination of the acoustic mode structures. Detailed pressure measurements, including both amplitude and phase, were made at ten positions spanning the length of the engine. The experimental data have been analyzed using two linear acoustic models. Four distinct modes were observed for various inlet/combustor combinations. These results help identify the mechanisms exciting low-frequency pressure oscillations in ramjet engines.
