Whitmore, Q. R. (1947) Experimental investigation of temperature and velocity distribution about a rocket jet. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-12092008-140117
The purpose of the investigation was to determine the temperature distribution and velocity profile surrounding the wake of a 1500 pound thrust liquid rocket motor. The temperature measurements were restricted to those 500°F and below. The velocities measured were in the region in which the temperature measurements were made.
The region in which the temperatures exceeded 500°F was found to be included within a solid angle of ten degrees. The high temperature region was found to be larger than the high velocity region.
The investigation was carried out during the academic year 1946-1947 at GALCIT Jet Propulsion Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Robert H. Boden.
