Subsonic Scarf Inlets InvestigatedA computational investigation is underway at the NASA Glenn Research Center to determine the aerodynamic performance of subsonic scarf inlets. These inlets are characterized as being longer over the lower portion of the inlet, as shown in the preceding figure. One of the key variables being investigated in the research is the circumferential extent of the longer portion of the inlet. It shows two specific geometries that are being examined: one in which the length of the inlet transitions from long-to-short over the full 180 deg. from bottom to top, and a second in which the length transitions over 67.5 deg.
