Abstract:

The reverse-thrust performance of two-dimensional and axisymmetric curved deflectors, symmetrically situated with respect to the impinging jet, is analyzed through the use of Levi-Civitas method, Belotserkovskys integral method, and the finite element method. The predicted results are shown to be in reasonable agreement with the available experimental data. The real-fluid effects such as Coanda effect, entrainment, and the pressure ratio are discussed in the light of the present inviscid flow analyses.
