Abstract : The formal conditions under which two rocket exhaust plumes might have similar distributions of temperature, composition, and velocity at corresponding points in the flow field and might present similar radiation characteristics to an external observation station were determined by the study of differential equations expected to provide a reasonable description of the physical phenomena involved.
