Abstract : Fully coupled two-phase supersonic flows inside three-dimensional nozzles of various configurations are studied, and the behavior of flows with and without solid particles is compared and discussed. The presence of solid particles in the supersonic flow delays gas-phase expansion and alters the imbedded compressive gas-phase shock strength. The results from the present study for an axisymmetric nozzle are compared with those of the well-known SPP code. Isometric projection of three-dimensional contour plots is used for concise interpretation for the computed results of a Mach 3 inlet one- and two-phase flow under various operating conditions.
