The principal objective was to understand the basic features of the flow in various types of turbomachines and where possible to use such results in the development of design theories. The major emphasis was placed upon problems of cavitation in axial machines and certain theoretical as well as experimentally related phenomena. Three projects were undertaken The measurement and observation of cavitating flows in axial inducer pumps, the observation of cavitation and cavitation inception in fluids other than water, and the observation and measurement of forces on the vanes of a cavitating cascade in a water tunnel.
