The design of the three-dimensional inward-turning inlet needs to meet the mass requirement within the full speed range of a combined cycle engine.
In this cycle, high pressure motive flow leaving the condenser enters the ejector through the motive inlet. The motive flow is expanded in the motive nozzle and creates a low pressure zone at the nozzle outlet, which entrains the suction flow from the evaporator.
So the difference between scramjet and ramjet engine is that the ramjet inlet slows down the freestream air to subsonic speeds before it reaches the combustor whereas the scramjet engine slows down the freestream air to low supersonic speeds, thereby avoiding the dissociation of molecules in the combustor.
Because the three inlets of the designed Rampressor are the symmetric periodic layout on therotor, the flow excitation characteristics and flow performance of inlet flow path 1 are studied under Rampressor rotor periodic whirl in this paper.
The current aerodynamic design for hypersonic vehicles is mainly for the demonstration vehicles which focused on minimizing resistance and the optimal matching between airframe and engine, and the forebody and engine inlet integrated design is the key issues for the configuration design.
