    Description: A large-scale ground-effects test of a single jet in hover was conducted as a first-case study for future tests to provide the V/STOL community with an improved data base. The objectives for this single-jet hover test were to (1) document the jet characteristics and then (2) gather the associated force data. These data are then compared with results obtained from existing prediction methods. A conically convergent nozzle was mounted to a turbojet engine, and an 8-ft-diam suckdown-plate model measured the lift-loss forces in ground effect. Jet-exit characteristics (pressure profile, temperature, turbulence, etc.) are documented for several nozzle pressure ratios. Characteristics that may give rise to scale effects are discussed. Results from this first study indicate that small-scale tests, and current prediction methods, will lead to significant errors in the lift-loss estimation of a single-jet configured aircraft, hovering in ground effect.
