A determination was made of shapes of nozzles which, at a given mass rate of flow, given length, and given exit cross section, produce maximum thrust. The minimum sector is predetermined rather accurately by the mass rate of flow thus, the most important geometrical features of the nozzle are contained in this formulation. For the solution two separate examinations were carried out. First, the shape of the nozzle near the minimum sector was determined. Second, the supersonic section of the nozzle was determined.
