A model was established to discuss the effect of operating parameters and nozzle shapes on the performance of injectors. The comparison pointed out that heat load has worst effect on injector geometries, while little effect on area ratio. On the other hand, the area ratio is very sensitive to suction temperature, which is critical to injector performance. The least energy loss is achieved when nozzle converges gently at the same nozzle entrance and exit diameter.
