Abstract: A k-ε numerical analysis of a fuselage-shielded inlet similar to that of the YF-16 was conducted. The simulations were conducted at Mach 0.6 at -10° to 40° angles of attack. Results were validated with experimental values obtained in the 90° bending pipe and circular S-duct. Pre-entry separation effects were simulated by a flat plate and offset by the diverter height. Results showed that the pressure recoveries resembled that of the YF-16 inlet, where negligible losses were up to 30° angle of attack (AOA). The increase in the angle of attack also resulted in the diminishing strength of the twin swirls.
