Design of S-Shaped Submerged Inlet
The influence of centerline and the cross-section variation to aerodynamic performance of the inlet was researched in a wider range. A new method of measuring the total pressure recovery coefficient and total pressure distortion coefficient of the inlet was proposed. Based on the loitering aircraft, a s-shaped inlet was designed to meet the needs of stable flight of loitering aircraft, whose total pressure recovery coefficient is 93.2% and total pressure distortion coefficient is 1.2%.
