ESDU 86002
Drag and pressure recovery characteristics of auxiliary air inlets at subsonic speeds.
Abstract:
ESDU 86002 provides methods for estimating the drag and pressure recovery of intakes partially or wholly immersed in the boundary layer. The methods, which are semiempirical, apply to circular, semicircular or rectangular scoop intakes, with or without boundary layer diverter, and flush rectangular intakes having a shallow entrance ramp of rectangular or NACA curveddivergent planform. The effect of throat just aft of the lip is derived from theoretical calculations taking account of the velocity profile. Empirical methods, based on a limited database, predicted spillage drag and, for scoop intakes, the contribution from profile drag.Indexed under:
