  abstract  = {Dual bell nozzle is a promising one among the altitude
adaptation nozzle concepts, which offer increased nozzle
performance in rocket engines. Its advantage is the simplicity it offers
due to the absence of any additional mechanical device or movable
parts. Hence it offers reliability along with improved nozzle
performance as demanded by future launch vehicles. Among other
issues, the flow transition to the extension nozzle of a dual bell
nozzle is one of the major issues being studied in the development of
dual bell nozzle. A parameter named over-expansion factor, which
controls the value of the wall inflection angle, has been reported to
have substantial influence in this transition process. This paper
studies, through CFD and cold flow experiments, the effect of overexpansion
factor on flow transition in dual bell nozzles.},
