Lift Characteristics of Asymmetric Exhaust Nozzles at High Flight Speeds

  • W. G. E. Lewis (a1), R. J. Herd (a1) and M. V. Herbert (a1)

Summary

If a supersonic nozzle is designed for less than complete expansion of the flow, some lift force can be produced without downwards deflection of the nozzle. A theoretical analysis has been made, by the method of characteristics, for a two-dimensional nozzle consisting of an upper wedge and lower parallel shroud. General trends of lift performance with the main variables have been obtained.
