Abstract

Results Of Zero-Lift Drag Characteristics On Two LCA-Related Afterbodies Employing The Jet Simulation Rig Are Reported.One Of The Afterbodies Was an axisymmetric Configuration Relevant To LCA Kaveri Engine And The Other Involved A Three-Dimensional Boat-Tailing Concept Leading To A Square Base ; The Annular Base Area To (Max) Forebody Cross-Sectional Area Was 0 .23 For Both Afterbody Configurations . The Tests Were Made At Freestream Mach Numbers Of 0 .80 And 0 .96 And Covered A Jet Pressure Ratio Of 1 .5 To 5 .0 The Results Show That, While The Total Drag Levels For The Two Afterbodies Are Comparable At MO.= 0 .80, The Drag Of The Square Base Afterbody Is Appreciably Lower (About 20%) Relative To The Axisymmetric Case At Ao 0 .96 . Certain Broad Features Of The Flow On Square Base Afterbodies Are Discussed As Well.
