Abstract:

This report briefly reviews the results of the Kaman AviDyneAEDC experimental program funded by DNA. The purpose of this program was to develop an experimental technique that could be used to define the nuclear-blast-induced distortion at the inletengine interface of aircraft and air-breathing missiles. The result of the test program have been evaluated as has the potential impact of these results on other air-breathing engines with inlets having different LD values. Author
