Aerospace What is the characteristics of the flow in Hot-water rockets

  1. Oct 8, 2015 #1
    So I'm trying to make a Hot-Water Rocket. But I want to make the necessary thermodynamics calculations first.
    What kind of flow will it be in such systems

    I think it's obviously going to be an unsteady flow but is it uniform or not?

    I also would love if you guys linked me to unsteady energy-mass flow of water problems. I tried google and my thermodynamics book but 99% of the problems are in steady flow.
    Thanks in advance.

    What exactly do you mean by a "hot water rocket"?
