Abstract : Predictions of nozzle performance may be strongly affected by the choice of the flow model: large discrepancies with actual behaviours could occur if the two-dimensional gasdynamic effects and the variations of chemical composition are not suitably accounted for, especially when the nonequilibrium region is wide enough and 2D gasdynamic phenomena interact significantly with chemical kinetics.
