This report provides details of the air mass flow calibration work carried out in respect of the 1 :6 scale LCA intake model . An ejector with a constant area mixing tube was used to draw air through the intake model . A maximum of 0 .72 kg/s of air flow could be drawn through the model, when both side inlets were open . Further increases in the quantity of air drawn through the model could not be achieved due to high total pressure losses in the system . However, in the range of intake air flow rates achieved, a linear relationship with measured data was observed which could be extrapolated to higher flow rates with minimum errors .
