The investigation of high velocity air flow in a radial, parallel-walled passage was conducted to determine; first, whether or not a diverging physical boundary is necessary to produce superacoustic acceleration, and second, if supersonic velocities can be attained what type of discontinuity, if any, occurs. A limit of the investigation was the amount of air available* Available air dictated such small flow areas that boundary layer conditions materially affected net flow area. Therefore, all conclusions of this investigation apply to air flow in a parallel- walled, radial passage with very small flow area such that flow dimensions are the same order of magnitude as boundary layer thickness.
