Abstract

DUCT systems of various types are used on aircraft. The efficiency of the systems depends upon the losses in the duct. A corner in the duct may produce a large resistance to flow if it is not carefully designed. Research on the problem of corner resistance has been undertaken by a number of investigators. Their results show that the design of a corner is very important. In the following discussion the more significant results are summarized and some factors governing the design of an efficient corner are set forth.
