Abstract:

An analytical method for calculating the supersonic part of a Laval nozzle is presented. This method permits a simplification of the calculation of the supersonic part of a Laval nozzle by omitting the complicated graphical method. Nozzles with smooth walls and those with edges are considered. The analytical calculation of the supersonic part of the nozzle is done by the approximation method of S. A. Khristianovich. Author
