The flow field around the injection port for secondary injection of a gas normal to a supersonic stream has been studied in a series of wind-tunnel experiments. The experiments were conducted at freestream Mach numbers of 1.38 to 4.54. Gaseous nitrogen, argon, and helium were used as injectants. New information concerning pressure fields, concentration fields, and shock shapes was obtained. A scale parameter has been calculated, based on a simple, inviscid model of the flow field. This scale parameter gives a good general correlation of the data. Use of this scale parameter allows prediction of a simple scaling law for the side forces generated by secondary injection. This side-force scaling law is in approximate agreement with existing rocket motor test results.
