The initial development of a nonaxisymmetric vectoring exhaust nozzle has been completed for the U. S. Navy by the General Electric Company. This exhaust system, called ADEN (Augmented Deflector Exhaust Nozzle), has been tested at GE’s Peebles, Ohio test facility using a YJ101 engine as the gas producer. This paper reviews the structural and cooling design of the ADEN nonaxisymmetric nozzle. Temperature and pressure data from the test series are compared to design intent for the nozzle operating in normal cruise and deflected (vectored) modes.
