A simple, but approximate form of the equation of motion for potential flow is derived for the transonic flow field in an elliptical nozzle. The curvature of the nozzle surface in the vicinity of the throat must be gradual. The approximate equation is solved by means of a double power series. The solution shows that thermodynamic and gasdynamic properties are constant along elliptic paraboloids. For the special cases of axially symmetric and plane nozzle flows, the solutions become identical to those obtained by Sauer. Author
