Abstract

Inlet as part of aircraft engine plays important role in controlling the rate of airflow entering to the engine. The shape of inlet has to be designed in such away to make the rate of airflow does not change too much with angle of attack and also not much pressure losses at the time, the airflow entering to the compressor section. It is therefore understanding on the flow pattern inside the inlet is important. The present work presents on the use of the Fourth Order Runge Kutta – Harten Yee TVD scheme [1, 2] for the flow analysis inside inlet. The flow is assumed as an inviscid quasi two dimensional compressible flow. As an initial stage of computer code development, here uses three generic inlet models. The first inlet model to allow the problem in hand solved as the case of inlet with expansion wave case. The second inlet model will relate to the case of expansion compression wave. The last inlet model concerns with the inlet which produce series of weak shock wave and end up with a normal shock wave. The comparison result for the same test case with Fluent Software [3] indicates that the developed computer code based on the Fourth Order Runge Kutta – Harten – Yee TVD scheme are very close to each other. However for complex inlet geometry, the problem is in the way how to provide an appropriate mesh model.
