Suppose that curved compression surface of inlet consists of segments. Two curved surfaces formed by equal compression angles of the micro-element segments and a slight increase in the compression angle of the micro-element segments are designed respectively. The numerical simulation method is used to compare the performance of two curved surfaces with the reference three-wedge compression surface. Select NASA classic test data, in order to determine the turbulence model and calculation method

The results show: the configuration of the segment compression angle deeply affects compression efficiency of the curved surface compression system. Pressure gradient distribution on the compression surface with constant compression angles segments is nearly constant along the incoming flow direction, and the curved compression surface easily resist the separation of the boundary layer compared to three-wedges compression surface. The approximate calculation method of the bending shock profile is given.
