Some low-speed characteristics of an air-induction system having scoop-type inlets with provisions for boundary-layer control

Earl C. Watson

An investigation was conducted at low speed of an air-induction system having twin scoop-type inlets on the sides of the fuselage of a model of an airplane designed for flight at supersonic Mach numbers. The leading edge of the lip of the scoop was rounded and there were provisions for control of the boundary layer ahead of the inlet.
