Swan, Walter C. (1948) The influence of nozzle design on the flight performance of rocket vehicles, with an analysis of the results of jet separation. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-01192007-131828
The object of this study was to investigate those parameters which affect the overall performance of a sounding rocket. The index of performance is the maximum summit altitude attained when neglecting separation in a nozzle operated under overexpanded conditions. Secondly, a theoretical analysis was made of the effect of jet separation on nozzle performance.
