Hi all, I'm working on programming a simple 2D method of characteristics program to design the nozzle wall contour for a supersonic rocket nozzle. I'm wondering roughly what sort of difference I should expect from a 2D vs 3D method of characteristics program and where I could find a good description of the 3D method. Also, how do rocket companies go about designing their nozzle wall contours? Is the method of characteristics (2D or 3D) actually used by rocket companies or are there better methods for generating the nozzle contour?
