Abstract:

The purpose of the investigation was to Study the boundary layer when rocket exhaust gases discharge in open air and impinge on variously shaped surfaces. Determine the feasibility of controlling the blast effects by using a boundary layer of ambient air to prevent excessive heat transfer from the exhaust gas to the surface of the blast-control medium.
