Experimental results from a small static water-augmented air-jet 46 gas horsepower maximum are presented and correlated with theory. The data consists of thrust measurements as a function of mass-flow ratio for three spray station configurations and two pressure ratios. A model of liquid particle shattering is introduced, added to the theory, and its effect on the data correlation is discussed. The similarities between this static experiment and a ship installation are also discussed. Author
