Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2773849A1] Prior to its final use compressed air held in a high-pressure storage tank (23) is passed at a lower pressure through a thermal reheater (56) containing a burner (57) and a coil (58) to increase its pressure and/or its volume before it is injected into the engine's combustion or expansion chamber (2). A buffer chamber (43) between the reheater and air injector (22) allows the air flow to be regulated and pumping effect to be avoided prior to injection.
