This paper describes an analytical method used to provide information concerning limiting flows for subsonic ejector nozzles. Three potential limiting flows have been identified and modeled using reduced control volume based analysis: (1) incipient reverse flow into the secondary inlet, (2) choked flow in the secondary inlet, and (3) choked flow in the exit mixing stream. Comparison of the methods developed here with the classical control volume portion of an ejector nozzle code have been performed and show good agreement. As such, it is concluded, that within the scope of one-dimensional control-volume based computations, that the methods developed here provide an efficient tool to help delimit the design space acceptable for ejector operation.
