Abstract:The problem of compressible flow through an asymmetric two-dimensional convergent nozzle is solved by employing the method of hodograph transformation, coupled with finite-difference computation. With the given appropriate flow parameters, solution of the flow problem is first established in the hodograph domain. The corresponding nozzle configuration and local flowfield properties are subsequently obtained through direct integration. Vector-thrust performance and configuration design under certain constraints are also presented. Wind tunnel experiments are also conducted to obtain pressure data along the nozzle walls for verification purposes. The numerical results are found to be in good agreement with the measured data.
