Jet Engine Problems? Answered
I have been building a mini Jet Engine. I have a VERY STRONG electric fan for the compressor. Outer shell is made of sheet metal. The fuel I have been trying to use is gasoline. The intake is about 2.5 inches across and about 3 inches in it begins to close up to about 0.6 inch diameter where the air is compressed and mixed with fuel before being burnt. The problem is that its starts but it explodes. Is it too much fuel, to much compression from the compressor, to small of a diameter for the combustion chamber and exhaust or something else completely?
Haven't done much with jet before so any help would be appreciated.
