A design criterion for arbitrary diffusers.
Gapp, Donald Robert
MetadataShow full item record
This study presents the derivation of a diffuser design parameter, which takes into account losses due to the geometry of the diffuser. A criterion for design of annular diffusers, using the design parameter to predict losses, is developed from reference data and model tests. A curved wall annular diffuser was designed and tested to verify the predictions of the design criterion for an arbitrary diffuser.

A study of boundary layer and mass bleed in a short length supersonic diffuser for a gas dynamic laser Habel, Paul Grimmer (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1976-03);This research was conducted to study the effect of boundary layer and mass bleed on the starting (i.e., establishment of supersonic flow) and running of a short length supersonic diffuser for a gas dynamic laser.
