One of the important issues in the assessment of intake/engine compatibility in civil turbofan engines is the prediction of the coupling effects between the intake and the engine. An actuator-disk model has been applied to the calculations of the flow through a high-bypass-ratio turbofan geometry, including the presence of the core-support pylon and a nonaxisymmetric inlet, and the effects of the core engine. The results of a series of calculations are presented, and the nature of the interactions between the flow through a fan and the system components is addressed.
