Abstract : During the last few years much work has been done in the field of the so-called MPD accelerators. Many effects contribute to the complexity of the thrust production mechanism in the jets emerging from such devices. Among these effects, the problems of swirl, entrainment, and pressure distribution within the jet can be subject to an experimental investigation with gasdynamic types of probes. (Author)
