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.
