Formatted abstract
This thesis presents an in-depth design of a supersonic inlet for use on a Mach 2 ramjet, dubbed the ‘TF1000’, while this paper will concentrate specifically on the intake design it was part of a combined thesis project to design, build and test a solid fueled ramjet. Due to the size and complexity of such a device, it was broken into four sections; intake, structure and nozzle, combustion and finally data acquisition. Starting with the theory behind how supersonic inlets work so as to give a bit of a background into a lot of the design choices made throughout the project. The paper then branches off into several different areas and covers every aspect of taking an initial design through to a stage of completion where it can be tested. Several other areas not specifically related to the intake system itself but crucial to the overall success of a large scale integrated system like this one are also discussed. Finally, a post-flight analysis as well as a few future recommendations is presented to provide an idea as to how well the chosen design worked and any possible changes that could be made to better improve the intake system.
