Abstract [en]

A parametrical study is performed of coolant dump gas ejectors for a sandwich rocket

nozzle design. Five geometrical variations are simulated in four ambient conditions

(static, subsonic, supersonic, vacuum) using an in-house CFD solver. The test cases

are compared with a baseline case and the resulting thrust and ISP are evaluated on a

local and global level. A longer dump wall is found to give the best performance in all

ambient cases, with a second possibility of reducing the circumference of the nozzle end

stiffener. The possibility of post-ejection coolant gas combustion is encountered for high

ambient pressure, high subsonic velocity flight.
