A High Speed Civil Transport (HSCT) inlet at Mach 2 and angle of attack is simulated by using a 3D Navier-Stokes solver with the Baldwin- Lomax algebraic turbulence model. An extrapolation uniform mass bleed boundary condition for the slot bleed is successfully employed. For zero angle of attack and critical operation, the pressure distribution agrees well with the experiment. The location and intensity of the terminal shock, total pressure recovery are accurately computed. The angle of attack to cause the inlet unstart is accurately predicted. The mesh refinement results are presented.
