Abstract : The report describes the results of an experimental study involving a two-dimensional, underexpanded, free jet flowing into a static medium. The investigation was concerned with the determination of jet heights as a function of the nozzle flow properties. In support of this objective experimental results of two supersonic nozzles (Mach numbers of 2.89 and 2.99 and throat widths of 0.0335 inch and 0.0204 inch, respectively) are presented along with a complete data tabulation which includes photographs. A universal data correlation, expanded to include the axisymmetric jet case, is presented.
