An Investigation Was Conducted To Determine The Feasibility Of Producing Large Quantities Of Gas As The Driving Medium Of Steam Ejectors By Directly Mixing Water With The Exhaust Gas Stream Of A Rocket-Type Combustion Chamber. The Feasibility Of Producing Large Quantities Of Steam-Gas Mixture Was Demonstrated. Gas With Specific Humidities Below The Saturated Value Was More Suitable As An Ejector Driving Fluid Than Saturated Mixtures. He Evaporative Efficiency Of The Rocket Steam Generating Rig Was In The Range From 91 To 103 Percent.
