A system for cold ow testing of an aerospike nozzle has been developed in an e ort to examine the e ectiveness of aerodynamic thrust vectoring and truncated nozzle base bleed. These tests are designed to produce results that will support the design of a system for hot ow testing of the same technologies. Design of a nozzle suitable for testing with reasonable cold-gas mass ow rates and measureable forces and moments involved an extensive parametric study. Conceptual-level computational uid… Expand
