The method of three-dimensional linearized characteristics was applied to the design of annular supersonic nozzles. The equations and coordinate system used are presented along with a step-by-step calculation procedure of the method. A typical nozzle was designed which produces a radial variation in the exit Mach number and flow deflection. The results are presented in terms of the two-dimensional and final three-dimensional nozzle contours in three radial planes. The method and system of equations presented are applicable to guide vanes or stators with large turning angles and high tangential components of velocity.
