Inlet Performance (778 words)
The inlet sits upstream of the compressor and, while the inlet does no work on the flow, there are some important design features of the inlet.
Referring to our station numbering, free stream conditions are noted by a "0" subscript, the entrance to the inlet is station "1" and the exit of the inlet and entrance to the compressor is station "2".
The inlet is usually sized to pass the maximum airflow that the engine can ever demand and, for all other conditions, the inlet spills the difference between the actual engine airflow and the maximum air demanded.
Inlets (750 words)
On a typical subsonic inlet, the surface of the inlet from outside to inside is a continuous smooth curve with some thickness from inside to outside.
The inlet lip is sharpened to minimize the performance losses from shock waves that occur during supersonic flight.
For hypersonic inlets the value of pressure recovery is very low and nearly constant because of shock losses, so hypersonic inlets are normally characterized by their kinetic energy efficiency.
