A new methodology Euler semiempirical simulation for three-dimensional inlets (2ES3D) has been developed to predict three-dimensional missile inlet aerodynamic performance within a small fraction of the time required for conventional Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes solvers. The 2ES3D method is based on an Euler flow solver with a virtual terminal shock model and an analytical subsonic diffuser model. The details and validation of the methodology are presented.
