Abstract:

Existing data were reviewed for application to computer programs to predict TRTV performance and evaluating TRTV influence on the total airplane system. Three programs were developed 1 Jet Trajectory and Spreading Program -- to predict the shape and trajectory of the TRTV exhaust plume, 2 Reingestion Prediction Program -- to predict the onset of reingestion, and 3 TR and TV System Performance and effect TRTV operation on engine stability margin. Static tests were conducted to determine multibearing thrust vectoring nozzle performance and blocker door geometry effects on annular cascade thrust reverser performance. Results were incorporated in the TR and TV System Performance Program. The programs provide relatively simple design tools to evaluate TRTV performance and to determine potential exhaust flow interference and reingestion data to STOL transport configurations is limited. Low speed wind tunnel testing is recommended to obtain this type of data.
