Abstract
Vernier engines operating at the same time as the main missile engine can change the overall structure of the engine exhaust plume. This SBIR focuses on the modeling of this interaction using techniques that do not require the use of high fidelity 3-D CFD computations. The proposed approach will develop a simple, overlaid 3-D mixing code, using locally linearized differential equations techniques, that will be used in conjunction with current axisymmetric models.
