Title: Fluid dynamic means of varying the thrust vector from an axisymmetric nozzle / submitted by Steven Slavko Vidakovic.

Abstract: This thesis describes a thrust vectoring nozzle (TVN) which produces a jet which may be deflected at angles in excess of 80o from the nozzle axis by fluid dynamic means, while maintaining total thrust efficiency of the order of 50%, or at 50o with an efficiency of the order of 70%. The thrust vectoring by fluid dynamic means is achieved by injecting secondary fluid at the nozzle throat and partially separating the primary jet causing it to deform.
