Abstract:

A concentric arrangement of boost and sustainer nozzles has been investigated to determine the effects of relative longitudinal position of the nozzles on base drag during sustainer operation. The results of the investigation indicated that relative position of the nozzles has a significant effect on base drag. The data presented are based on the results of tests in the Aberdeen Ballistic Research Laboratories 13- by 15-inch supersonic wind tunnel at Mach numbers from 2.0 to 3.5. The model tested had a sustainer nozzle to base diameter ratio of 0.24, and a boost nozzle to base diameter ratio of 0.80. Author
