External burning increases base pressure. The characteristic and linearized equations with heat addition are discussed, and the condition for maintaining irrotationality with heat addition is derived. A transition model, which extends the Crocco-Lees base flow model, and a spin model are discussed. Computed results are compared with experiment. The optimum location for supersonic external burning is given. Author
