Abstract:

The problem of finding the three-dimensional potential flow field for a finite number of blades of constant circulation in an axial turbomachine is reduced to the determination of the three-dimensional field due to a single radial vortex filament of uniform strength in a cylindrical annulus. The resulting solution is evaluated for the specific hub ratio of 0.6, and is compared to the two-dimensional potential flow usually assumed to exist. Author
