Abstract : A Fortran computer program was developed for the calculation of the one-dimensional flow of a reacting gas through a supersonic nozzle. The report describes the equations and their use in the program. In its present form it handles five chemical elements and fifteen chemical species undergoing thirty reversible reactions. These limitations are easily expanded. The initial conditions and equations required for the solutions of a specific problem are discussed. A solution produces temperature, density, chemical composition, velocity and pressure versus distance and/or time through the specific nozzle. Available thermodynamic and kinetic data built into the program are supplied. A H2-Air problem is used to illustrate the program. (Author)
