A theory is presented, yielding the wake shape, the total pressure loss, and the drag force of two dimensional vee-gutter profiles in unstaggered cascade array, for incompressible, steady, potential flow directed normal to the cascade axis. The results, for all gutter-included angle and blockage ratio, are compared to two- and three-dimensional experimental results, showing good agreement. Approximate theories are presented, valid at high blockage ratio and either at small or large gutter angle.
