Pagination or Media Count:
The capabilities of the rectilinear cascade and its associated equipment was investigated. The various parameters are developed from the momentum theorem and results are compared with NACA data. Computer programming is included to rapidly evaluate future test data obtained from various blade configurations. The purpose of these tests is to gain more precise knowledge of the physical nature of the flow through cascades and to establish design data for the accurate prediction of the performance of axial-flow turbomachines, turbines as well as pumps and compressors.
