Pressure oscillations in ramjet engines are approximated as one-dimensional motions and treated within linear acoustics. The exhaust nozzle is represented by the admittance function for a short choked nozzle. New results have been obtained for the quasi-steady response of a normal shock wave in the diffuser. Acoustic fields in the inlet region and in the combustion chamber are matched to provide an analytical expression of the criterion for linear stability. Combustion processes are accommodated but not treated in detail. As examples, data are discussed for two liquid-fueled engines, one having axial dump and one having side dumps.
