Abstract:

The development of governing equations for hub-to-tip streamline curvature solutions in turbomachinery passages and blade rows and incorporating viscous radial mixing is presented. Arbitrary passage geometries and quasi- orthogonal description are accounted for. Fortran program coding is carried out for the special case of unbladed, axial-flow passages. Flow solutions are obtained by iteration based on fixed streamline patterns in the meridional plane followed by further iterations involving readjustment of the streamlines until overall convergence is obtained. Simple examples are presented to illustrate the solution technique. Turbomachinery flow analysis, Radial mixing, Streamline curvature solution
