    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/
    What is a inlet vortices and how does it form?


    2. Relevant equations
    I was actually going through the concept of inlet flow distortion. I would like to what is the concept of inlet flow distortion?


    3. The attempt at a solution
    According to me, i feel that inlet vortex can happen when the air flow towards the inlet is too high separating the boundary layer of the air from the inlet wall. This low pressure air then turns back forming vortex. I dont know if this is correct.
