Description: Report presenting an investigation of the flow properties of a constant-outer-wall annual diffuser in combination with a tailpipe in order to come up with a configuration suitable for turbojet afterburners. Information about axial inlet flow and whirling inlet flow is provided. During testing, a vena contrata region formed downstream from the center body terminal and rendered the first 1/2 diameter of the tailpipe ineffective.
