Nozzle aspect ratio effect on the mixing of Mach 2 elliptic free jet, issuing from the convergent-divergent elliptic nozzles of aspect ratio 2, 3 and 4, in the presence of adverse and marginally favorable pressure gradients at the nozzle exit has been studied experimentally. The results show that AR4 jet enjoys better mixing than AR2 and AR3 jets at all nozzle pressure ratios. The AR2 and AR3 jets displayed axis switching where as there is no axis switching for AR4 jet. The shadowgraph shows that the waves in AR4 jet are weaker than those in AR2 and AR3 jets.
