Welcome to the Pressure Gain Combustion Program Committee website!

Important Announcement!

The International Constant Volume and Detonation Combustion Workshop will take place on June 13 - 15, 2017, in Poitiers, France. Please click on the link for more information.

The Pressure Gain Combustion Program Committee (PGC PC) seeks to advance the investigation, development, and application, of pressure gain combustion technologies for improving propulsion and power generation systems and achieving new mission capabilities. The PGC PC will do so through the mechanisms afforded by its position within the AIAA including: regular meetings to exchange open information, coordinated conference activities with relevant TC’s and other PC’s, channels for raising awareness such as position or status papers, and educational/outreach efforts such as short and web-based courses.

To learn more about pressure gain combustion and the applications, please visit our Resources page.
