In this paper, the effect of nozzle divergent section geometry on fluid flow and heat transfer within the convergent-divergent nozzle numerically and experimentally is investigated. Axisymmetric supersonic flow simulation for the converging-diverging nozzle is conducted. The flow field is a steady turbulent two-dimensional flow. The working fluid is a combustion product and is considered as a compressible ideal gas. The flow field is simulated using the commercial code FLUENT. The equations are discretized implicitly with the second order of accuracy. In this study, two convergent-divergent nozzles have been analyzed that the divergent part of one is a cone-shaped and the other is bell-shaped. The calculated parameters in the simulation have been compared with the experimental results. Based on the simulation results and the values obtained in the experimental test, the error is less than 4% that is acceptable and appropriate. According to the results, flow simulation accuracy is appropriate.
