The present thesis presents a comprehensive, up-to-date review of supersonic flow separation and side-loads
in internal nozzle flows with ensuing side-loads. In addition to results available in the literature, it also
contains previously unpublished material based on this author’s work, whose main contributions are
- discovery the role of transition between different separation patterns for side-load generation
- experimental verification of side-loads due to aeroelastic effects and
- contributions to the analysis and scaling of side-loads.
