In the present paper, we report the single pulse detonation study using natural gas as the fuel. The detonation tube used was measured to be 1500 mm in length with 100 mm of internal diameter. The target of this research is to study the effect variable percentage of oxygen used as oxidizer and nitrogen as the diluents gas to the pulse detonation combustion of natural gas. The effects of different level of ignition energy used to initiate the pulse combustion and variable length of obstacle arrangement also being reported. The result shows that, from the experimental investigations natural gas is less sensitive to form detonation combustion for any percentage of nitrogen dilution. It is observed that the flame is propagating at high speed turbulent flame combustion except for longer length of obstacle it shows detonation propagations.
