Experimental investigation of temperature and velocity distribution about a rocket jet

by Whitmore, Q. R.

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of the investigation was to determine the temperature distribution and velocity profile surrounding the wake of a 1500 pound thrust liquid rocket motor. The temperature measurements were restricted to those 500°F and below. The velocities measured were in the region in which the temperature measurements were made. The region in which the temperatures exceeded 500°F was found to be included within a solid angle of ten degrees. The high temperature region was found to be larger than the high velocity region. The investigation was carried out during the academic year 1946-1947 at GALCIT Jet Propulsion Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Robert H. Boden.
