Abstract : A theoretical and experimental study of the steady-state performance of a jet stretcher diffuser system is presented. The steady-state starting conditions are determined by limits imposed by the nozzle exit boundary layer, the blockage area, and the jet stretcher ambient pressure level. Analytical techniques are presented for estimating the starting boundary conditions related to either the nozzle exit boundary layer limit or the jet stretcher ambient pressure level limit. Limited experimental results for a small scale system are presented. (Author)
