Abstract:

Source flow effects in conical hypervelocity nozzles are studied by means of a simple Newtonian theory for slender conical bodies. Experiments were conducted to examine the validity of this simple theoretical approach and a semiempirical theory is developed to assess the magnitude of source flow effects. Significant source flow effects were found, and the need for contoured hypervelocity wind tunnel nozzles is shown. Author
