Abstract:

A Streamline Curvature Method of through flow analysis for axisymmetric axial, mixed and radial flow turbomachinery has been implemented. The method can be used for either the direct or indirect problem and can solve open flow problems such as flow through a propeller on a body of revolution as well as the more familiar duct flow problems. Computational refinements allow modeling of blade row chordwise and spanwise loading and blockage distributions and selection of streamline locations. Several examples of the abilities of the analysis are presented. Author
