Practical Intake Aerodynamic Design by E.L. GOLDSMITH

This book brings together, for the first time, the experience of a group of international authors who have been closely involved in the design of air intakes for both air frame and engine manufacturers. Valuable data from systematic experimental measurements on intakes for missiles, combat and V/STOL aircraft research sources in the UK, USA, France and Germany is included, together with the latest developments in computational fluid dynamics applied to air intakes.

An intake, or especially for aircraft inlet, is an air intake for an engine. Because the modern internal combustion engine is in essence a powerful air pump, like the exhaust system on an engine, the intake must be carefully engineered and tuned to provide the greatest efficiency and power. An ideal intake system should increase the velocity of the air until it travels into the combustion chamber, while minimizing turbulence and restriction of flow.
