Abstract Title: Undergraduate Advanced Laboratory Studies on Supersonic Nozzle Flow
Abstract: Undergraduate studies are carried out in the advanced laboratory to examine the supersonic flow from an axisymmetric converging-diverging nozzle. Flow is initiated by the rupture of a diaphragm and exits from a small nozzle (with a 3/8" exit diameter) into standard atmospheric conditions from a one gallon tank.  COMSOL simulations are carried out for the nozzle and comparisons are made to experiments based on high-speed video shadowgraph imaging and dual-beam interferometry.
