Abstract:

The lecture is given in four parts, each being a step in the process of nozzle design, and within each part the methods and techniques preferred by the lecturer are presented. We begin with a reminder concerning control volumes and the separation of aerodynamic and propulsive forces and moments. Then it is demonstrated how an appropriate control volume can help define the propulsive force vector that maximises cruise efficiency. The third part recounts Raos method for maximising thrust when nozzle length is restricted and the final part introduces a new, simpler, Method of Characteristics MOC for non-equilibrium flows.
