Abstract:

The results of a comprehensive study of the comparative performance characteristics of geometrically similar vented and unvented bistable amplifiers, together with their actual dimensions, are presented. The Reynolds number in the tests ramged from 9,750 to 60,000, Mach number from 0.07 to 0.42, and the power jet velocity from 75 to 460 ftsec. Each amplifier as conceived and designed was capable of giving a maximum of geometric flexibility which enabled a systematic evaluation of the shape and location of the splitter plate and Coanda walls.
