A technique based on a one-dimensional constant area flow model has been developed for solving a large class of supersonic ejector optimization problems. In particular, the method determines the primary nozzle Mack number and ejector area ratio which optimizes either the entrainment ratio, compression ratio, or stagnation pressure ratio given values for the other two variables and the primary and secondary gas properties and stagnation temperatures. Design curves for the common case of diatomic primary and secondary gases of equal molecular weight and stagnation temperature are also presented and discussed.
