Abstract : Two-phase supersonic flows dominate the structure of exhaust plumes of rocket engines with metallized propellants. Recent study has focuses on the prediction of the characteristics of these exhaust plumes in order to evaluate plume visibility, radiation signatures and impingement effects. The objective of this study is to provide new experimental data on particle concentration, size distribution, transport effects, and particle interactions with shock waves in two phase jets. Progress in these measurements is decided in this annual scientific report. (Author)
