Abstract:

A 116-scale model of the diffuser of the Propulsion Wind Tunnel 16T was installed and tested in the Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel 1T. Objectives of the test were to evaluate the effectiveness of a number of geometric modifications of the diffuser to improve diffuser performance. Thirteen configurations involving combinations of six geometric modifications were evaluated in the tunnel Mach number range from 0.60 to 1.50.
