Why Don’t Jet Engines Have Vortex Reduction Caps?
So in the field of civil engineering, there are caps for drainage inlet pipes that prevent vortexes from forming in an effort to increase the mass flow rate of water. Upon thinking about this concept again, it boggled me why such a thing didn't exist for jet engines, as fundamentally, air is still a fluid and jet engines want to take in as much air as possible.
