Transonic flow field in critical flow Venturi nozzle

Terezie Kreuzová


In this paper, theoretical and numerical analysis of a~transonic flow field of critical flow Venturi nozzles according to the ISO~9300 standard is performed. Deviations of the flow field from an estimate based on one dimensionality are clarified. While the theoretical analysis allows prediction of these deviations, the numerical analysis allows quantification of their influence. The main studied phenomena include the local supersonic compression in transonic expansion and the Prandtl-Meyer expansion. The tendency of the flow field to spatial oscillations is shown, alongside the ability of the system to damp these oscillations.
