Some investigations of heterogeneous flow in a rocket nozzle


Seymour, Ernest Richard (1962) Some investigations of heterogeneous flow in a rocket nozzle. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/01GY-2E21.


In the heterogeneous flow of finely divided particles and gas in a rocket nozzle, the assumptions that the flow enters the nozzle with no lags, that the radiative transport of energy between particles is negligible, and that there are no temperature gradients within the particles, are commonly made. In this paper, each of these assumptions is investigated in detail, and they are shown to be reasonable for typical rocket nozzles.
