Design, fabrication, and testing of a new Mach 3.0 high heat flux nozzle was performed at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex’s (AEDC) High-Temperature Lab (HTL) for the H3 arc jet facility at Arnold Air Force Base, TN. Per customer request, the HTL investigated the possibility of higher heat flux nozzles with larger flow field areas for the H3 facility. After design and fabrication, testing was performed to characterize the flow field of the 7.1-cm-diam contoured nozzle.
