An attractive feature of the plug-type nozzle for turbojets and rocket jets is that it can automatically adjust its effective exit area with operating pressure ratio and achieve a high level of efficiency over a wide range of operating pressure ratio without variation of mechanical shape. The design and off-design performance analysis of such nozzles is described.
