A method of designing a supersonic axisymmetric tunnel air inlet based on the problem of an inverted flow in an annular nozzle with isentropic expansion is considered. The nozzle contour is constructed by the method of characteristics. Parameters of one inlet for viscous and inviscid gas flows are calculated.
