Flow pattern in a converging-divirging nozzle

Rothstein, W.

The report presents a method for calculating the flow pattern near the throat of slender laval nozzles in both the two-dimensional and axially symmetrical cases. Adiabatic and potential flow are assumed. The method is applicable throughout the entire speed range' the velocity of sound itself plays no singular part. The principal problem considered is that of finding the velocity field in and near the throat of a given nozzle shape.
