- The results obtained in an inlet-engine compatibility test run in the 10x10 SWT of the NASA-Lewis Research Center are reviewed. This program was run to measure the time-variant distortions produced in a supersonic inlet and to relate a unique distortion peak, occurring in an instant of time, to the origin of stall in a compressor. The major stumbling block in this type of effort is the determination of a proper increment of time over which to average pressures before computing distortions. It is reasonable to expect that the proper averaging time is related to the particular compressor in question. The most significant point reported is that the proper averaging time may not be solely dependent on a particular compressor, and, in fact, may vary with operating conditions, even for the same inlet-engine combination.
