Method and graphs for the evaluation of air-induction systems

George B. Brajnikoff
May 1952

Graphs have been developed for rapid evaluation of air-induction systems from considerations of their aerodynamic-performance parameters in combination with power-plant characteristics. The graphs cover the range of supersonic Mach numbers up to 3.0. Examples are presented for an air-induction system and engine combination at two Mach numbers and two altitudes in order to illustrate the method and application of the graphs.
