I have been looking into a number of things related to Reaction Engine's Sabre Engine Program for their Skylon hypersonic aircraft. I find the program absolutely fascinating as the technological development looks like it is on track to revolutionize air and space flight in the coming decades.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

To my specific question, is there an equation that can be used to calculate the amount of air that its heat exchanger can cool while in operation? (http://www.reactionengines.co.uk/heatex_rel.html [Broken] ) I am assuming there is a general equation out there that would work best with some estimates, but I am having trouble locating it.

On a side note are there any other companies that are succesfully pursuing similar technology that anyone knows of? It looks like many other projects had been canceled in the last 10-15 years, but I am assuming that others must be looking to follow quickly.

Thank you
