An investigation was made at free-stream Mach numbers of 1.62, 1.93, and 2.41 to determine the effects of a primary jet and secondary air flow on the base pressure and pressures acting over the boattailsurface of a body of revolution for two secondary discharge areas. The Mach numbers of the primary nozzles were 1 and 3.23 with the secondary mass flow being varied from 0 to 10 percent of the primary mass flow. The ratio of jet stagnation temperature to tunnel stagnation temperature was about 0.96. The Reynolds number range of the investigation was from 2.1 x 10(6) to 2.9 x 10(6)based on body length. All testing was conducted with a turbulent boundary layer along the model. This report presents results obtained with zero-length ejector and covers jet static-pressure ratios from the jet-off condition to a maximum of about 128 for the sonic nozzle and to a maximum of about 9 for the supersonic nozzle.
