Performance of porous fuel injectors in a 2D radical farming scramjet has been numerically investigated. Fuel penetration, intake shock structure and fuel combustion have been analysed and compared with experimental tests performed in T4 shock tunnel. Effectiveness of porous fuel injection over traditional porthole injection has also been numerically investigated.
