A supersonic nacelle design employing a bypass flow path internal to the nacelle and around the engine is disclosed herein. A set of aerodynamic vanes may be used to shape a supersonic airflow within a bypass around an engine. The vanes may be capable of directing the subsonic airflow around the engine, and then expanding the subsonic airflow into a supersonic exhaust. The vanes may shape the airflow by reducing sonic boom strength, cowl drag, and airframe interference drag.
1. A supersonic nozzle for a supersonic engine, comprising: an outer wall;a bypass wall disposed within the outer wall and configured to separate an airflow inside the outer wall into a primary flow portion and a bypass flow portion, the primary flow portion passing through a supersonic engine and the bypass flow portion passing through a bypass that bypasses the supersonic engine, the bypass flow portion comprising a subsonic flow;a set of struts configured to couple the outer wall with the bypass wall, the set of struts tailoring a direction of the byp...
