Pulse combustion has been used in a variety of ways since first being discovered in 1877. This a combustion process that occurs under oscillatory conditions with changing state variables, such as pressure, temperature and velocity. This paper looks at the historic uses of pulse combustion, and it provides an overview of this unique process. Pulse combustion has been used to amplify thrust power with the German V-1 rockets. Pulse combustion has been used to optimize flame efficiencies, and it is now reemerging in many new industrial applications including some for Waste to Energy.
