  • An aura of mystery has always surrounded the thrust augmentation properties of ejectors, largely through lack of agreed bases for comparison with conventional propulsion systems. Twelve definitions of thrust augmentation are discussed, and two are selected as rational criteria for ejector thrust performance, based on thrust, energy input and size. Analysis shows that thrust augmentation results from the surface stress distribution over the total ejector surface, and is strongly influenced by… CONTINUE READING
