Effect of Boattail and Sidewall Curvature on Nozzle Drag CharacteristicsThe NASA-industry team has sponsored several studies in the last two years to address the installed nozzle boattail drag issues. Some early studies suggested that nozzle boattail drag could be as much as 25 to 40 percent of the subsonic cruise. As part of this study tests have been conducted at NASA-Langley to determine the uninstalled drag characteristics of a proposed nozzle. The overall objective was to determine the effects of nozzle external flap curvature and sidewall boattail variations. This test would also provide data for validating CFD predictions of nozzle boattail drag.
