An inlet is an indentation of a shoreline, usually long and narrow, such as a small bay or arm, that often leads to an enclosed body of salt water, such as a sound, bay, lagoon, or marsh.
Hello
I'm thinking of how to attack this problem.
Outside a channel-inlet, wind is passing perpendicular to the opening with a wind speed of 9 m/s and a fan sucks in a certain amount of air into this channel so that the velocity in the channel is 3 m/s.
When the outside air is 0 m/s I have no...
Hello! My background in propulsion is extremely lackluster with airbreathing engines, so any help is appreciated with the following questions. I understand blade pitch is highly variable for turbofans which operate near the speed of sound, to avoid any localities on the blades reaching the speed...

Which compressed air inlet to a ring (loop) pipeline would likely be best in terms of least turbulance and best flow (avoiding dead head)?
Given:
1) The inlet has to be in the corner of the rectangular loop.
2) Air consumption will be constant and evenly distributed throughout the loop.
3)...
My theory is that the gas inlet end, which is supposed to act as a sound reflector may not be doing a great job because it is plastic and has a hole cut in the centre for the gas inlet port. But by that reasoning, the flames at the end most distant from it (the sound inlet end) should be the...

Hello, PF!
I’m trying to model a real piping system, which has multiple inlets and one outlet, so I can’t use Bernoulli’s equation. Instead, I’m planning to use the generalized macroscopic energy balances as shown in BSL, which allow for any number of inlets and outlets. However, first I want...

Hi,
