MetadataShow full item record
External burning increases base pressure. The characteristic and linearized equations with heat addition are discuss ed, and the condition for maintaining irrotationa ity with heat addition is derived. A transition model, which extends the Crocco-Lees base flow model, and a spin model are discussed. Computed results are compared with experiment. The optimum location for supersonic external burning is given.
