Abstract:

An existing code for calculating axial turbine performance using multiple stream surfaces was modified and made to run on the equivalent of an HP-1000 computer system. Calculations were made for the geometry of a 485 horsepower dual-discharge air-drive turbine for both on and off-design conditions. The results were compared with available data obtained at off-design speeds. Agreement of the flow rate and horsepower to within 5 was obtained. Author
