Analysis of factors influencing the stability characteristics of symmetrical twin-intake Air-induction systems

Norman J. Martin, Curt A. Holzhauser
Mar 1950

An analysis is made of the factors influencing the flow instability and flow reversal which has been encountered experimentally at low inlet-velocity ratios with several twin-intake air-induction systems. It is shown that the flow instability and flow reversal are functions of the static-pressure-recovery characteristics at the juncture of the two ducts.
