Abstract:

Static tests were made on a series of circular duct inlets designed to have minimum lip thickness. Measured surface static pressures are in excellent agreement with theoretical predictions. The minimum lip thickness of test inlets that did not have separated flow was 0.069, expressed as the ratio of lip thickness to internal duct diameter. Results indicate that flow will separate from the lip if the predicted lip surface pressure suction coefficient is greater than 6.0, but will not separate if the pressure coefficient is less than 4.5.
