Mach (top) and pressure (bottom) contours for axisymmetric Busemann inlet with evenly spaced bleed perforations along length of inlet. Images show changes in Mach and pressure contours as a function of inlet length ranging from inlet start (left) and inlet throat (right). Contours were produced via Cart 3D, an inviscid code for automated CFD.
