Abstract : A criterion is presented which may be applied to control the expansive flow of reacting gas mixtures, thus ensuring that a state close to chemical equilibrium is always maintained. The criterion has been used as the basis of a method for determining the optimum equilibrium nozzle shape for air over a range of stagnation conditions. (Author)
