Abstract:

An optimization analysis employing the calculus of variations and a numerical relaxation scheme for applying the results are presented for the design of optimum, axisymmetric thrust nozzle contours including boundary layer effects. The method is illustrated by comparison with a known solution without boundary layer effects. A parametric study of boundary layer effects for a range of parameters typical of scramjet operation is presented. Author
