Abstract:

This report presents the concluding work done on the investigation of cascade wake structure for an incompressible, turbulent fluid accounting for curvature effects. Some of the background information contained in the semi-annual report, dated November 1974, is not included here in the interests of brevity. However, some repetition of equations and the development of the similarity analysis is repeated, so that the difference in method for global similarity and local similarity can be clearly seen. The new results contained in this report are those obtained by the method of local similarity. In general, these results represent an improvement over those obtained by global similarity as described in the semi-annual report. A detailed comparison of the results of the two methods is presented and discussed in the following parts of this report. In addition, a detailed description is provided for the numerical solution of the boundary value problems for local similarity. This should be an adequate guide for anyone wishing to use the program for related computational work.
