THE PERFORMANCE OF LOW THRUST (0.05 N) VENTURI NOZZLES.
ROYAL AIRCRAFT ESTABLISHMENT FARNBOROUGH (UNITED KINGDOM)
Pagination or Media Count:
An account is given of experiments to determine the performance under transient and steady state conditions of a 0.05 Newtons thrust nozzle for use with propane gas. It is shown that, with the inclusion of viscous effects in the flow equations, which is necessary at low thrust levels, the nozzle achieved the design performance at the operating plenum pressure, but at lower pressures the performance deteriorated.
