Chutkey, Kiran and Vasudevan, B and Balakrishnan, N (2012) Flowfield Analysis of Linear Plug Nozzle. In: JOURNAL OF SPACECRAFT AND ROCKETS, 49 (6). pp. 1109-1119.Full text not available from this repository.
Full-length and truncated linear plug nozzle flowfields have been analyzed, using both experimental and computational tools, for pressure ratios ranging from 5 to 72, which include the transition of an open base wake to a closed base wake. A good agreement has been found between computational and experimental results on the plug surface. Considering the deficiencies of the computational tools in predicting base flows associated with truncated plug nozzles, an engineering model to predict the wake structure transition in such flows is proposed. The utility of this model in conjunction with empirical tools for the closed-wake base pressure prediction is established. The model is validated against the experimental results available in open literature.
