S.C. Gupta


Air Intake aerodynamic design for fighter aircraft is described herein.  Axial flow compressor is considered. The air intake pressure recovery mass flow requirement, flow distortion and flow stability are explained. Some design related issues are addressed. Air intakes of varied design are compared. Computational numerical techniques are brought out for design and analysis.

Keywords: Aerodynamics, compressor, Air intake
