Description: The Mach number and temperature profiles in jets expanding from convergent and convergent-divergent nozzles are presented for several values of nozzle-exit pressure ratio. The effects of jet temperature, Reynolds number, and humidity on jet spreading are briefly evaluated. The results indicated that the downstream Mach number profiles for a heated jet are slightly narrower than those for a unheated jet, whereas the downstream temperature profiles were unaffected by nozzle temperature change, and that the effects of Reynolds number and humidity were negligible.
