Conference paper


The evolution of the incident shock in the plane overexpanded jet flow or in the axisymmetric one is analyzed theoretically at the whole range of governing flow parameters. Analytical results can be applied to avoid jet flow instability and self-oscillation effects at rocket launch, to improve launch safety and to suppress shock wave-induced noise harmful to environment and personnel.
