Abstract:

This report is intended to provide an introduction to the broad area of throttle dependent forces for airbreathing aircraft, primarily subsonic to supersonic capable. Basic concepts and examples are presented for subsonic, supersonic and transonic inlet and nozzle applications. Experimental and analytical determination of throttle-dependent forces is discussed, including approaches and potential problems. A final reference section of basic definitions is included for completeness. key words Aircraft, Exhaust nozzles, Inlets, Airbreathing propulsion, Subsonic, Transonic, Supersonic.
