jdt is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

I've been trawling the CFX documentation to try and find out the key implementation differences between the 'subsonic' and 'supersonic' inlets, but with rather little success. Is anyone able to shed some light on this? For example, what penalty would I suffer if I used a supersonic inlet velocity in conjunction with a subsonic inlet?

Many thanks in advance!
