Investigation at transonic speeds of aerodynamic characteristics of a semielliptical air inlet in the root of a 45 degree sweptback wing
Description: Report presenting an investigation in the transonic blowdown tunnel at a range of Mach numbers to determine the increments in lift, drag, and pitching moments due to the installation of a semielliptical-shaped air inlet in the root of a 45 degree sweptback wing and to study the internal flow characteristics of the inlet. Results regarding the internal pressure measurements, effect of inlet installation on external aerodynamic characteristics, effect of boundary-layer removal on internal pressure recovery, and inlet performance are provided.
