Air inlets for turbojet engines through the transonic speed range
Coyle, James Joseph
MetadataShow full item record
In this report an attempt has been made to investigate analytically the performance of a diffuser for use in a turbo-jet engine at transonic flight speeds. The factors which detract from diffuser performance have been explored, and means to minimize these losses have been discussed. Convenient methods of determining the magnitude of these losses analytically have been suggested, but final corroboration of them will depend on future experimental verification.
